WHOSE STREETS? – Rated R – 1 hr. 30 mins.

Directors Sabaah Folayan, Damon Davis take viewers into the streets of Ferguson MO, to experience the aftermath, turmoil and consequential activism that erupted after the slaying of Michael Brown on August 9, 2014.

Through actual footage of the events that transpired for weeks after the killing, and intense interviews with individuals who have became activists for change, WHOSE STREETS? explains why so many individuals felt a need to fight for their rights against “the system” and the police brutality they have personally observed and experienced on the streets of St. Louis…

I give WHOSE STREETS? A rating between MUST SEE ON THE BIG SCREEN and WAIT AND CATCH THIS FILM on DVD. Powerful and moving, WHOSE STREETS? gives you an inside view of how the death of Michael Brown affected the entire community of Ferguson MO, and the country as a whole, thus sparking new civil rights commentary and action throughout the US.  This film also shares the angst and heartache of this community and its residents in detail, as well as the “war zone” these same residents were forced to live in, while the community was grieving for the loss of this young man. The only part of this film that felt very one-sided for me, was there being no insight from the police throughout this film, as not much of any commentary was shared on their views throughout the weeks that the turmoil ensued. But, even with that component missing, WHOSE STREETS? is still filled with a gripping intensity conveyed at every turn, as the intenseness of the moment, and the situations erupting thereafter, are expressed throughout each and every inch of this film…
