Policing in America is broken. There’s no two ways about it; when black men and women are gunned down in the streets and in their homes and the police who kill them face little to no consequence, something is broken. A Shot Through The Wall seems keen to take on at least some of that brokenness in telling the story of a young Asian American police officer who accidentally discharges his weapon and kills a young black man on the other side of a wall.
Director Mina Shum is back, people. Meditation Park is the latest film from the Vancouver director and explores the immigrant experience with a woman finding empowerment. You know what? It’s a damn delight, too.
