Whose Streets is a new documentary sharing the stories of Ferguson, Missouri, residents who were a part of a movement to fight against racial injustice and police brutality after the killing of 18-year-old Michael Brown.
When Brown, who was unarmed, was shot by Ferguson police officer, Darren Wilson, it marked a breaking point for black Americans. Ferguson became the site of massive protests and civil unrest. Whose Streets allows artists, musicians, and residents who were at the forefront of these protests to share their side of the story.
The film is directed and produced by activist Sabaah Folayan, a native of South Central, Los Angeles, and is co-directed by award-winning artist Damon Davis.
Folayan said she wanted to make the film as a "tribute to our people — our deeply complex, courageous, flawed, powerful, and ever hopeful people — who dare to dream of brighter days. This is more than a documentary...this is a story we personally lived. This is our story to tell."
