Indie Lens Pop-Up, presented by ITVS, Independent Lens, and WCTE Upper Cumberland PBS, is excited to offer an advance screening of Peace Officer, a film by Scott Christopherson and Brad Barber.  This screening event will take place on Wednesday, April 6, at 11:45 a.m. at the Cookeville Performing Arts Center.

Winner of both the Grand Jury and Audience Awards for Best Documentary at the 2015 SXSW Film Festival, Peace Officer is the story of William “Dub” Lawrence, a former sheriff who established and trained Utah’s first SWAT team — only to watch in horror as that same unit killed his son-in-law Brian Wood in a controversial standoff years later. Driven by an obsessive sense of mission, Lawrence uses his investigative skills to uncover the truth about that incident and other officer-involved shootings in his community, while tackling larger questions about the changing face of peace officers nationwide. Peace Officer premieres on Independent Lens Monday, May 9, 2016 at 9 p.m. on WCTE.

WCTE Indie Lens Pop-Up film screenings are always free and open to the public.  For this lunchtime screening, complimentary lunch refreshments will be provided (first come, first served), or attendees are invited to bring a ‘brown bag’ lunch to enjoy during the film.  Doors for the event will open at 11:30, and the film will begin promptly at 11:45.  Film run time is 70 minutes.

The Cookeville Performing Arts Center is located at 10 E. Broad St.
