The Circle

After the police kill four unarmed Latino men in four months, how will a community heal itself? The Circle is the story of a rural community in East Salinas that made history by using ancient wisdom & culture to break a cycle of implicit bias by the police. Follows a former gang member and a police chief who confront each other for answers.

Featuring post-screening Q&A with filmmaker Cheo Tyehimba Taylor, Political Research Associates’ Cloee Cooper, and the HAAS Institute’s Gerald Lenoir.
