Description

The feature length documentary STOP follows three years in the life of David Ourlicht,
one of the four named plaintiffs in Floyd vs. City of New York. By interweaving
the story of David’s family with the action around the trial, STOP places the stop
and frisk controversy in the context of a long history of civil rights. From David’s
Jewish grandfather, who describes being arrested in Greenwich Village on his first
date with David’s grandmother, an African-American woman, to David’s biracial
father, Italian-American mother, and mixed race sister, the Ourlicht family offers a
powerful backdrop to the flashpoint issue of stop and frisk. The film asks: Must we
trade safety for civil rights?
From interviews with the lead attorneys bringing in the case, to police officers who
defend the practice, to the law professor who wrote the expert report, to coverage
of Mayor Bloomberg and Police Chief Ray Kelly, STOP paints a picture of a city
divided. Then the trial begins. From the rallies, to the press conferences, to the day
David testifies, to closing statements and CCR’s celebratory party, STOP offers a
behind the scenes look at the trial, and gives a history of an era of intense political
battles that the City of New York will never forget.
