Encounters is thrilled to announce that Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis, filmmakers of the acclaimed documentary Whose Streets? will now be joining the Festival on the opening weekend. Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis’s exceptional documentary, which premiered at Sundance, follows the story of how the killing of 18-year-old Mike Brown inspired a community to fight back and later sparked a global movement.

Both filmmakers will be present at the screening and Q+A of their film on Saturday 3rd June at 8pm at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town.
