Dirs. Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis | Documentary | U.S.A. | 2017 | 103 min.
This powerful “people’s documentary” follows the activists and leaders of the movement ignited by the police killing of unarmed 18-year-old Mike Brown on August 9, 2014. Just slain, his body lay in the streets for hours, marking a breaking point for the citizens of St. Louis County. Determined to learn the truth behind the dramatic scenes playing out on the news, first-time filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis traveled to Ferguson. The result is this unflinching look at the uprisings, a generational battle not just for civil rights, but for the right to live.
“An on-the-ground snapshot of the anger and activism that ensued in Ferguson.”
– Dennis Harvey, Variety
