Description

Join us September 29 for the season opener of the Peace of the City Film Series: WHOSE STREETS, a documentary about the Ferguson uprising. Co-sponsored by Don't Shoot Portland, this screening is free and open to the public.

WHOSE STREETS 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 County. Grief, long-standing tension and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. In the days that follow, artists, musicians, teachers and freedom fighters stand on the front lines to demand justice. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military-grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new wave of resistance: a battle not for civil rights, but for the right to live.

Directed by: Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis Year: 2017
