PEACE OFFICER, an amazingly timely film by Brad Barber and Scott Christopherson addresses concerns over our country’s recent controversies surrounding police force, ended the Hamptons International Film Festival 7th Annual Summer Doc Series. The film is about the increasingly militarized state of our American police system as told by William "Dub" Lawrence, a former sheriff who established and trained his state’s first rural SWAT team only to see that same unit kill his son-in-law in a controversial standoff 30 years later. Driven by an obsessed sense of the truth of his mission, Dub uses his own investigative skills to uncover the facts in this and other recent officer involved shootings in his community. The film looks a the looming questions about the changing face of peace officers nationwide with an alarmingly increasing volume of SWAT team mission into vast numbers.. PEACE OFFICER debuted at SXSW and won the grand jury prize and documentary audience award. A lively party hosted by Mary Jane & Charles Brock’s at the village home on Main Street preceded the screening.
