An unflinching look at the 2014 events triggered by the killing of 18-year-old Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, how they inspired a community to fight back and sparked the global Black Lives Matter movement.
Consisting mostly of footage shot by the people who lived through the violence, news clips and social media posts, Whose Streets? is a deeply moving account of the course of events documented over several years.
The film is made all the more powerful by detailing the personal lives of many of those involved and is a remarkable example of how 21st Century citizen journalism can impact on the official narrative, and shift the balance of power.
