4:15 PM  TEA & JUSTICE  by Ermena Vinluan / USA / 2007 / 54 min.
In TEA & JUSTICE, Officer Ormsby and Detectives Chan and Leung share stories about their careers, their personal lives, the stereotypes they defied and how they persevered. Intrigued by the image of Asian women in a non-traditional career, filmmaker Ermena Vinluan explores her own mixed feelings about cops while honoring the challenges these women embraced and the changes they accomplished. TEA & JUSTICE includes interviews with ordinary New Yorkers and anti-police abuse activists - some of whom believe that reducing police abuses will require hiring more women cops, since they tend to avoid using excessive force.
The film's humorous cartoons, lively graphics and original music enhance the three women's stories and its complex look at race, gender and power.
