Ferguson, Missouri is the location for on-the-ground police brutality documentary WHOSE STREETS? which looks at the aftermath of the killing of Michael Brown and the justice movements that followed.

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. 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.

“Portrait of Ferguson may be the doc of the year.” Rolling Stone

“A boots-on-the-ground portrait of the aftermath of Michael Brown Jr.'s murder and the sparks of a movement that sprang from it, this impressionistic collection of testimonies, frontline dispatches and citizen journalism could not feel more essential.” Rolling Stone

“Sabaah Folayan’s documentary Whose Streets?, co-directed by Damon Davis, is a gritty record of that time and its aftermath. It represents the spirit of something more powerful than a bullet, the seed of something good springing from a terrible and unjust event.” Time Magazine
