Detroit Threat Management

(Feature Documentary Only)

The VIPERS are a secretive paramilitary squadron based in a bunker on the Detroit River. Led by the ambitious, Star-Trek-quoting Commander Dale Brown, they split their time between corporate bodyguard work, self-defense training courses, and pro-bono community service, defending women and families from violent ex-husbands and boyfriends throughout Detroit.

This intimate, cinema verité-style portrait of Commander Brown, his family, and his eclectic group of urban warriors, was filmed over the course of three years.
