Code of Silence

Mauer des Schweigens
Leonard Mink
Germany /2022 / 0:18:00

In 2016, the Berlin police shot Hussam H. for unexplained reasons; the case has never been solved. Inspired by this incident, "Code of Silence" sheds light on esprit de corps using the example of a German police duo, facing the decision of whether they feel morally committed to the truth or to loyalty. While pursuing a suspect, police officer Thomas loses his service weapon in a scuffle with the fleeing suspect. His partner, and long-standing friend, Grebe sees no other way than to shoot at the suspect and kill him. Thomas is not entirely convinced that Grebe's actions were right, and now has to decide whether his moral obligation is to truth or to loyalty.
