In the midst of a global uprising against police violence and systemic
racism, No Visible Trauma / Above the Law examines a deeply troubled
police department and reveals the devastating consequences of
unchecked police brutality. Despite its relatively low crime rates,
recent years have seen the Calgary Police Service shoot and kill more
people than officers in any other Canadian city, and more than either
the New York or Chicago police departments in 2018.
Five years in the making, the film unravels the intertwined stories of
three individuals who were the victims of extreme violence at the
hands of police officers. From the kidnapping and beating of a young
immigrant from Ghana, to the fatal shooting of an unarmed man during a
“wellness check”, the film exposes a criminal justice system that
fails to hold police officers accountable for their actions.
