The film, titled "Police Reform, Ramarley Graham, and The Right To Know Act,” details the story of how the city pushed hard to legislate a promising police reform this year, but ultimately failed when City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito and former NYPD Commissioner William Bratton struck a deal to implement the act administratively, but not by law.

Mayor de Blasio is planning a p.r. blitz to improve the NYPD’s relationship with blacks and Hispanics — just in time for his 2017 re-election bid.

The NYPD sent a notice, obtained by The Post, to public-relations firms last Friday soliciting proposals for a campaign to improve its “depth of connection to various communities . . . with special emphasis and desired impact within communities of color.”

The solicitation — dated Dec. 2 and signed by NYPD Chief Contracting Officer Frank Bello — notes that proposals are due back to the city by Jan. 17.
