Description:

"Full disclosure: after watching it three times, I’d go so far as to call it a short film masterpiece [...] Stop is a quiet tour-de-force, a pent up cry for humanity and fairness in a system that feeds off its own worst instincts." -Mike Tully, Hammer to Nail (http://bit.ly/1x8dBmV) "Reinaldo Marcus Green’s gripping nine-minute drama, shot in two nights on location in Red Hook, Brooklyn, centers around a student athlete who is stopped by the police for no other reason than the color of his skin. Displaying real filmmaking finesse, 'Stop' is a timely tale well told." --Kim Adelman, indieWIRE (http://bit.ly/1sV4M3x) "A riveting, tension-filled short that studies the uncomfortable details apparent in racial profiling." --Erik Luers, indieWIRE (http://bit.ly/1wpwwZg) "Probably one of the most important and timely shorts for America this year. Reinaldo Marcus Green's film addresses the upsetting aspects of New York City's stop-and-frisk policies with sensitivity and insight." -Jeff Bowers, VICE (bit.ly/1mU7HHQ) "The film packs a lot in nine minutes with its timely topic and subtle hand." --Maddy Kadish, Independent (http://bit.ly/1w5EdKr) "References to slain teen Trayvon Martin and the recent racially charged events of Ferguson and New York City surfaced in direct and subtle ways throughout the festival, but the most powerful was NYU student Reinaldo Marcus Green’s nine-minute short Stop" --Julie Bramowitz, VOGUE (http://vogue.cm/1Dknog2) "Reinaldo Marcus Green On Going From Working At Chuck E. Cheese To Playing His Film At Tribeca" --Mary Angelica Molina, REMEZCLA (http://bit.ly/1HwNqOX) "Gripping Take on the NYPD's Stop-and-Frisk Policy. It's also an Adweek Watch Awards winner." --Michael Bürgi, Adweek STOP OFFICIAL SELECTIONS / AWARDS 2015 Sundance Film Festival (World Premiere), Hammer to Nail (Runner Up) Omaha Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Annapolis Film Festival, Aspen Shortsfest, Ashland Independent Film Festival, Florida Film Festival, Sarasota Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival, Nashville Film Festival, Chicago Critics Film Festival, Twister Alley Film Festival, Berkshire International Film Festival, Rooftop Films, Milwaukee Film Festival, Monadnock Film Festival, West Chester Film Festival, Longstory Shorts Film Festival, First Run Film Festival, Rainier Independent Film Festival,Mammoth Lakes Film Festival, St. Cloud Film Festival (Grand Jury Prize), Los Angeles Film Festival, Oak Cliff Film Festival, Cayman Islands Film Festival, Indy Film Fest, Guanajuato International Film Festival, Tacoma Film Festiva (25 New Faces)l, BFI London Film Festival,Bend Film Festival, Nitehawk Film Festival, Wandering Reel Film Festival, Tampere Film Festival (Finland), *National Board of Review (Student Grant Winner) *Adweek Watch Awards (Winner Best Drama Video) *Rooftop Films Special Screening, The Frame *Short of the Week *VICE Best Online Shorts 2015 Contact: info@greenbrosfilms.com | facebook.com/stoptheshort | twitter: @greenbrosfilms
