Police Beat

Co-written by Robinson Devor and Seattle critic and journalist Charles Mudede and produced by Seattle locals Jeffrey Brown and Alexis Ferris, Police Beat presents a unique protagonist in the post-9/11 world: a morally upright, Republican Muslim police officer. The film follows African-born Seattle bicycle cop “Z” on his beat for seven days and six nights, covering crimes, all of which are based on actual Seattle police reports. Starring as Z is 21-year-old Pape S. Niang, a non-actor who was formerly a member of the Senegalese Junior Olympic soccer team. An unusual portrait of an immigrant new to the United States that focuses less on the protagonist’s socioeconomic difficulties than on his emotional responses to American life. In English and Wolof with English subtitles. 80 minutes
