The fourth and final screening of Cinema Diverse 2017, is a 2012 American thriller film, “Compliance” is inspired by true events of a serial phone-prankster sociopath in the US who, for a decade, got away with a bizarre repeated hoax which occurred up to 70 deceptions. The plot focuses on a prank caller who, posing as a police officer convinces the manager of a fast food restaurant to carry out intrusive, unlawful and terrifying procedures on an employee. The film tells a story of one afternoon when Sandra, a manager of a fast food chain, receives a phone call from someone identifying himself as a police officer, that one of her employee, Becky stole something from a customer’s purse which she vehemently denies. Sandra, overwhelmed by her managerial responsibilities, complies with the officer's orders to detain Becky. This choice begins a nightmare that tragically blurs the lines between expedience and prudence, legality and reason. At the premiere at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, “Compliance” was met with controversy, as the audience's response included walkouts and shouting matches during the film's question and answer session as the film provokes disturbing and distressing feelings even though all events in the film started out from such a small incident.
