Description

After years of making somewhat autobiographical documentaries, Alan Zweig made “A Hard Name”, a film about ex-convicts. Now ten years later, comes a film about ex-cops. Assembling over a dozen interviews with retired police officers, it’s an honest, empathetic, and often harrowing look at a uniquely difficult profession. (TIFF ’19, Cinéfest selection)

“A no-frills portrait of all the good, and bad, that those on the front lines are capable of.” – Barry Hertz, Globe & Mail
