Cinestudio invites the Greater Hartford and Trinity communities to an important week of cinema exposing violent white racism – and the varying reactions to it – in two films, Detroit and Whose Streets? In what critics are calling the best documentary of the year, black filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis capture the aftermath of the killing of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by a police officer on Aug. 9, 2014 in Ferguson, Missouri. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country join embattled residents, standing together on the front lines to demand justice. As the National Guard descends on suburban St. Louis with military grade weaponry, the filmmakers capture an important moment in our time, as a new generation of political activism is born. 104 min
“Eye-opening. This is courageous, grassroots filmmaking at its very best.” – Dwight Brown, Huffington Post.
