Emmitt H Thrower is a retired disabled NY City cop turned artist/filmmaker and the founder of Wabi Sabi Productions Inc. a Bronx, NY Not For Profit. This is his first collaboration with disabled activist/poet Leroy Moore Jr. founder of Krip Hop Nation in Berkeley California. They envision the film as a tool to facilitate forums with discussions on the topic of police brutality against people with disabilities.
The film also highlights the companion CD, Broken Bodies, PBP, Police Brutality and Profiling Mix-tape project by Leroy Moore and 5Th Battalion founder, DJ Quad out of LA. Two main stories of police brutality emerge in the film, resulting in the victim's loved ones becoming disabled following their tragedy and personal loss. The work of disabled activists and artist/activists like Keith Jones, Mesha Irizarry, Lisa “Tiny” Gray- Garcia, Lethea Warren, and more is explored in the film, highlighting the work of these people of color.
The goal is to make the film available to communities around the country to enable them to organize and have discussions around this issue and work within the community to bring about positive changes.
