Underlining an ongoing pattern of racism and police brutality, as well as the frightening militarization of campuses nationwide, In His Own Home speaks to widespread and pervasive issues in our country that will, for the time being, remain among our most controversial and disconcerting. When heavily armed campus police broke into the University of Florida campus apartment of disabled and unarmed Ghanaian doctoral student Kofi Adu-Brempong, and within a minute of entry shot him in the face, his life was forever changed. Yet the officer who shot him, who had previously been caught cruising through town, throwing eggs at residents of a black neighborhood, was neither suspended nor fired. This documentary is about the ongoing pattern of police brutality against blacks, from Gainesville to Ferguson to New York, and the dangers of over-militarized college campuses. It is about student protests that led to University of Florida administration dropping charges against Adu-Brempong, and about continuing student efforts to revoke SWAT-like teams on campus and establish police review boards.

Press Quotes

A terrifying film, not merely for its powerful depiction of the near-fatal shooting of Kofi Adu-Brempong...but for unveiling the routine character of racist, militarized violence.

     —Robin D.G. Kelley, Professor of History, UCLA; author of Yo’Mama’
