Whose Streets?
 

An “on-the-ground, from the heart” (LA Times) doc about the Ferguson uprising, told from the front lines.

 


Loew Auditorium

MORE INFO

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 mix footage recorded by the protestors with activists’ testimony in this “on-the-ground, from-the-heart” (LA Times) documentary, which raises a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.

Programmer’s Note

We are excited to play this film as a follow-up to Theater of War’s Antigone in Ferguson, which plays at the Hop on September 15 and 16. In this unique theater experience, Ancient Greek tragedy, delivered by famed actors and community gospel singers, speaks to the violence and racism of today.
