We bring you these films in celebration of the 155th annual Juneteenth. Also known as Freedom Day or Jubilee Day on June 19th, Juneteenth is the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. We will be donating our portion of the ticket proceeds to a local non-profit and look forward to showing more films in honor of this day for years to come.
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. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. 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.
