Blue Code of Silence
Norway2020documentary75'International Documentary Competition
Abuse of authority has a long history among the ranks of the American police. In the 1970s New York detective Bob Leuci infiltrated his colleagues who were the most implicated in criminal activity. For exposing corruption on a massive scale he was branded a traitor. Who was he really? Employing sensation, some juicy bits of drama and film references, the documentary presents an unambiguous portrayal of a man who after many years decides to talk about his double life and the unwritten code observed by those who enforced the law.
