Welcome to '"Flint Town"

March 1, 2018

The directors of the new Netflix documentary series "Flint Town," Drea Cooper, Zackary Canepari, and Jessica Dimmock, discuss the new show. "Flint Town" follows the lives of several police officers in the troubled city of Flint, Michigan.

Cooper calls Flint "ground zero for the American struggle," pointing out it's a town built entirely on the auto industry and it's struggling to move forward.

Canepari says it's surreal to see a city in America this poor and this crime-ridden. He adds the number one question we should be asking is, "why isn't this getting better?"

Dimmock says the key to making the documentary work was getting the chance to work with so many open and honest collaborators. She says this show provides officers with an opportunity to have their voices heard on issues concerning all Americans.
