Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson Rebellion as told by the citizens and activists who were there. After 18-year-old Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, the city of Ferguson, MO, stares years of police brutality and institutional racism in the face and doesn’t blink.  And as the National Guard descends on the city with military-grade weaponry, a new resistance is born. Whose Streets? is a moving testament to a new generation of people fighting, not only for their civil rights, but simply  for the right to live. This documentary offers more than just questions – it offers a powerful way forward.
