Book cinema tickets for Whose Streets? + Short

A visceral portrait of the protest movement that rose up in Ferguson, Missouri, in the aftermath of the killing of yet another unarmed black man by a white police officer. When communal grief and anger, fuelled by long-standing racial tensions, turned vigils into marches and protests, the National Guard descended on Ferguson with military-grade weaponry, igniting residents' outrage. While most media outlets focused on the rioting,

Whose Streets? charts the journey that turned ordinary citizens into the torchbearers of a new resistance. Activist Sabaah Folayan's connection to the burgeoning Black Lives Matter movement invests this vital documentary with a raw urgency. Mixing original footage and interviews as well as cellphone videos, her striking directorial debut pays tribute to the underlying hopefulness that powers the protestors' impassioned calls to action.
