On Sunday February 18 at 1:30pm, the Orange County Racial Justice Collaborative joins us for a special screening of directors Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis’ timely and urgent documentary WHOSE STREETS?

A month after the 2014 murder of Michael Brown, first-time documentary filmmaker Sabaah Folayan left her pre-med track in NYC and flew to Ferguson, Missouri, driven to capture the rapidly-growing community uprising against ongoing police brutality and murders of young blacks in the United States. Whose Streets? focuses on seven main individuals as they meet, mobilize, and create a movement from the ground up, including the visionary Brittany Ferrell, a 25-year-old registered nurse and young mother; David Whitt, a recruiter for the civilian organization Cop Watch; and Tory Russell, a co-founder of Hands Up United.

An unflinching film that took three years to make, incorporating cell phone footage and actual tweets used by the organizers, Whose Streets? allows the residents of Ferguson to tell their own story, eschewing narration and other traditional documentary tropes as it chronicles of the origins of the Black Lives Movement in real time. As Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun-Times writes, “It’s likely not even the most well-intentioned and determined news crews could gain the kind of access, and give us the unfiltered viewpoints provided by the smart-phone visuals and home video camera footage shot by residents of Ferguson.”


“Folayan and Davis have put together a magnetic look at what it was like to live in that neighborhood, to walk those streets and to experience the eruption that turned everything upside down.” – Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic

“A riveting street-level account, not only of Ferguson’s days of rage, but also the decades of marginalization and mistreatment that led up to them.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“Raw and unadorned, Whose Streets? is a documentary in the truest sense of the word; an actual moving document of events fresh in the country’s memory, but never before laid as bare as they are here.” – Jude Dry, indieWire
