From an American dream to an American crisis, Netflix’s new original documentary series explores the struggles of living in a constant state of emergency.
Flint Town is the story of Flint, Michigan through the eyes of the city’s police department, in the aftermath of the Flint water crisis. Flint is consistently named one of the most violent cities in America and the community is still grappling with the coverup of a citywide water contamination, leading to a massive distrust in law enforcement officials.
Netflix takes an intimate look at the state of policing in America over the course of eight episodes, as filmmakers embed with the police officers faced with infrastructure issues and decreasing resources as they risk their lives to protect and serve the community, while simultaneously struggling to gain their support.
The series is produced in association with Anonymous Content and executive produced by Steve Golin, David Pritikin and P.G. Morgan. It is co-directed by Zackary Canepari, Jessica Dimmock and Drea Cooper.
The series premieres on Friday 2nd March. Here’s a trailer:
