COMPELLING. PROVOCATIVE. TRANSFORMING LIVES.
One of only five women nationwide to lead a major urban police department, Minneapolis Police Chief Janeé Harteau is hell-bent on reform and sees recruiting and promoting women as one way to do it. Then, the police killing of an unarmed white woman topples her command, leaving the women of the MPD to push forward without her. Women in Blue, a feature documentary seen through the eyes of women officers, is the first film to explore the relationship between power, gender and violence in a metropolitan police department.
