THE ARGUS PROJECT

TFF 2016 Directed by Gan Golan
FILM GUIDE ARCHIVE THE ARGUS PROJECT [TFF 2016]

A 2016 TFI New Media Fund grantee, The Argus Project is a transmedia work that directly intersects the public debate over police accountability. At the center stands a suit of tactical counter-surveillance armor embedded with body cameras that offers a simple question: If the police wear body armor to protect themselves while in public, what must ‘The Public’ wear to protect themselves from the police? Video projections surround the suit featuring former officers, activists, and family members directly impacted by police violence. In turn, creating a space for a real conversation on police violence—one that our country desperately needs. This project is urgent and powerful and created by an incredible group of artists and activists.
