From an American dream to an American crisis, Netflix’s new original documentary series, “Flint Town” — the story of Flint, Michigan through the eyes of the city’s police department — explores the struggles of living in a constant state of emergency and the team of underdogs fighting against all odds to save the city.

“Flint Town” was co-directed by Drea Cooper and VII’s Zackary Canepari and Jessica Dimmock.
