Two UK police officers find themselves unfairly stopped and searched in this satiric short from London-based filmmaker Harry Jackson. As Jackson cautions, the events taking place in the States right now are an important reminder that racism isn’t just something that exists elsewhere:

“In the UK, there were 30, 608 stop and searches in April 2020 — despite us being in lock down. This is a massive increase on previous years. As we know this disproportionately affects black people who are 9.7 times more likely to be stopped and search. True to the statistics, sadly both actors Alessandro and Selom have been subjected to this humiliating experience. BAME people have also been 54% more likely to be fined under corona virus restrictions. It’s overdue, but the George Floyd tragedy has forced us to reexamine the problems we have at home.”
