2017, 90min

 

This electrifying dispatch from the frontlines of America’s struggle for racial equality captures how the anti-police violence protests that erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, grew into a worldwide movement. Weaving together original footage with smartphone video and social media records, Whose Streets? offers an unfiltered look at a watershed moment in American history from the perspective of those who took to the streets—and faced down a heavily militarized police force—to demand justice.
