Nearly six years have passed since Michael Brown was killed by police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Missouri. Brown’s shooting led to numerous demonstrations in Ferguson and nationwide that catalyzed the organization of the Black Lives Matter Movement. In those years, we have continued to see minorities wrongfully arrested, subjected to police brutality and murder, and misrepresented in myriad ways in our society.
Whose Streets? looks at the Ferguson riots with a lens that seeks to understand community trauma through the perspectives of local teachers, students, workers, artists, and their families. Directed by Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis, Whose Streets? is a bold documentary that draws its courage from the strong voices of the people of Ferguson.
