WHOSE STREETS?

Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, WHOSE STREETS? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the national guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. Filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis know this story because they are the story. WHOSE STREETS? is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.

“Outstanding and incendiary...does a tremendous end run around mainstream news outlets and the agenda-driven narratives that emerge, particularly on television. Its images aren’t leaked by law enforcement or stage managed for the media, but come directly from the people who lived through the violent events of 2014.” —Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
