Pittsburgh Police subdue belligerent youth in "Pittsburgh Police 1969"
Get Tickets $11 / $9 seniors & students
In 1968-69, filmmaker John Marshall spent nine months with the cops on the North Side of Pittsburgh. The result is a remarkable portrait of a city and its police force. The camera witnesses domestic conflicts and questionable police tactics, day-to-day squabbles and violent encounters. The set of short films, presented in two programs, has never screened theatrically here until now. Following the Sept. 23 and 24 screenings will be two talks, "Cops and Cameras" and "Cameras as Witnesses". These lively discussions are free to all.
