The Dirty Side of the NYPD - 'A Cops and Robbers Story' Doc Trailer
"A story the NYPD doesn’t want you to see." Greenwich Ent. has debuted an official trailer for A Cops and Robbers Story, a searing documentary film from Romanian filmmaker Ilinca Calugareanu. This originally premiered at the 2020 DOC NYC Film Festival last year, and it's finally opening in January 2022. In the 1980s, Corey Pegues found himself embroiled in a life of crime as a member of New York’s City's infamous "Supreme Team" gang. A near-death incident forces Pegues away from the streets, but later he unexpectedly emerges as a rising star in the NYPD, his past unknown to his fellow officers. A decorated 21-year police career is threatened when his political stances and revelations about his former life cause strife within the police community. This sounds like a VERY important doc for the times we're living in, but I also doubt it'll make the NYPD fix their problems. it's just a story about how dirty and scrupulous they can be. Take a look.
Here's the trailer (+ poster) for Ilinca Calugareanu's doc A Cops and Robbers Story, from YouTube:
