Second Monday Movie Committee
June Movie - Our Streets
Monday, June 11 @ 7pm @ 4200 Cedar Ave. S. Minneapolis
How the killing of 18-year-old Mike Brown inspired a community to fight back. A people's documentary. The activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice bring you Whose Streets? - a documentary about the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and then left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis County, MO. Grief, long-standing tension, and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy and demand justice. As the National Guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new wave of resistance nationwide.
Some review comments:
“Excellent. If you think you've heard too much about Ferguson, think again. Now that America has some chronological distance from the clashes there between activists and law enforcement, it's exactly the right time for Folayan's angry, eloquent documentary, which takes the time and has the sense to honor the full range of citizens affected by what happened.” – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
“Eye-opening. This is courageous, grassroots filmmaking at its best.” – Dwight Brown, Huffington Jessica Post
