Whose Streets?
First screened in November 2017
Director: Sabaah Folayan. Documentary about the collective grassroots protests in and around Ferguson, Missouri, following the police killing of Michael Brown, Jr. Interview subjects include David Whitt, Brittany Ferrell, Alexis Templeton, Tef Poe, Ashley Yates, T-Dubb-O, Montague Simmons, Anthony Shahid, Lezley McSpadden, and Michael Brown, Sr.

Twitter Capsule: Complex vantages on and amid Ferguson that mass media largely omitted. Artfully ragged. Livid with communal wisdom.

VOR:   Culls resonant footage from a variety of sources and formats, without sacrificing its identity or coherence as a finished piece. Politically vital.
