About the Film:
Typically with virtual movies, the proceeds are split between the distributor and The Little. We will be donating our portion of the proceeds on this film to Yoga 4 A Good Hood.
Whose Streets? debuted at the 2017 One Take Film Festival, co-presented with the Rochester Association of Black Journalists and The Black Cinema Series. Director Sabaag Folayan was at The Little for a post-screening Q&A.
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.
