Docubox screening: WHOSE STREETS?

DOCUBOX Presents: WHOSE STREETS? film screening

30 AUGUST 2017 — LINK TO MORE INFO & RSVP

Docubox would like to invite you to our monthly screening on the 30th of August at PAWA254 Mageuzi Theatre, at 6:30pm. We will be screening ‘Whose Streets?’ directed by Sabaah Folayan and Co-directed by Damon Davis.

Whose Streets is a documentary film that follows activists who have taken to the streets to draw attention to the issue of police violence. This is as a result of an unarmed 18-year-old teenager called Michael Brown, who was killed by the police and left lying in the streets for hours. Brown’s killing sparked a fierce backlash and exposed fault lines in the relationship between African-American communities and the criminal justice system. Giving rise to the hashtag Black Lives Matter.

The film is relevant as our police have been seen to be heavy handed on how they have handled protestors across the country. Is there some justification for their actions? How do we address the police brutality and how do we start talking about the overdue police reforms?
