Told by the activists and leaders who live and breathe this movement for justice, Whose Streets? is an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. When unarmed teenager Michael Brown is killed by police and left lying in the street for hours, it marks a breaking point for the residents of St. Louis, Missouri. Grief, long-standing racial tensions and renewed anger bring residents together to hold vigil and protest this latest tragedy. Empowered parents, artists, and teachers from around the country come together as freedom fighters. As the national guard descends on Ferguson with military grade weaponry, these young community members become the torchbearers of a new resistance. Filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis know this story because they have lived the story. Whose Streets? is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.


Every day, Americans experience a mediascape that humanizes whiteness, delving into the emotional lives of privileged white protagonists while portraying people of color as two-dimensional and mostly negative stereotypes. Nowhere was this more apparent than in the case of Mike Brown who, despite being college-bound and well regarded by his community, was portrayed as a "thug" and a "criminal."

As a result, Ferguson has experienced media colonization since August 9th; as all eyes turned to the protests, the Grand Jury, and the response to the non-indictment, people became desensitized to the scenes of chaos. The dehumanization of Mike Brown was perpetrated by his murderer, perpetuated by the media, and reinforced by violent police repression of his community. This was a modern day lynching.
We are intimately aware of how we are portrayed in the media and how this portrayal encourages both conscious and unconscious racial bias. For this reason, it is essential that Black people be the ones to tell our own true stories. We are uniquely suited to make this film because we ourselves are organizers, activists and deeply connected to the events of August 9th and beyond. We are making this film, in part, as tribute to our people—our deeply complex, courageous, flawed, powerful, and ever hopeful people—who dare to dream of brighter days. This is more than a documentary...this is a story we personally lived. This is our story to tell.
- Sabaah Folayan & Damon Davis

You sacrifice your comfort, your security….you sacrifice everything to do this work.” – Brittany Ferrell

Having shaken the American consciousness overnight, the youth of St. Louis are faced with questions many seasoned politicians have yet to answer. The need for solutions pressures Brittany Ferrell, a 25-year-old nursing student and mother of young daughter Kenna, to begin organizing alongside other young queer activists. They founded the group Millennial Activists United (MAU). She leaves school, and activism becomes her life in the months following the murder. Challenges come from within and without. As Brittany struggles to balance her professional aspirations, family responsibilities and revolutionary ideals, she and her partner, MAU co-founder Alexis Templeton, face homophobia from inside the Movement. The pair stage direct actions that are increasingly dangerous, leading to a showdown on a major interstate highway and Brittany’s arrest. Facing felony charges and imprisonment, Brittany could lose it all.

We live here…we got a right to be out here! Since the police are not being held accountable we have to hold them accountable.” – David Whitt
David Whitt is a husband and father of four. He is in his apartment when shots ring out just a few feet outside his door. He recounts how masked men with assault rifles drawn arrive riding atop fire trucks in the hours following the fatal shooting. Police erect a curtain around Michael Brown’s body to prevent residents from seeing what is happening. Witnessing the heavy-handed response by police and their early attempts to conceal information, Whitt picks up a handheld camera and begins to film. He and his chapter of Copwatch become guardians of Mike Brown’s memorial, rebuilding it when it is vandalized and later removed. His counter-surveillance of local police results in eviction for him and other activists in the neighborhood. While fighting for justice, Whitt also struggles for his family’s livelihood.
I don’t really consider myself a leader. It’s damn near like being a politician and that’s one thing I don’t want to become. I’m just a black man dealing with the cards that I was dealt.” – Tef Poe
Underground hip-hop artist and activist Tef Poe arrives at Canfield Green to see blood fresh on the street. Tef is one of many who refuse to go inside, even when faced with military weapons and an enforced curfew. While on the frontlines he meets Tory Russell and together they form Hands Up United. As mainstream media descends upon the city, Tef becomes a regular presence on outlets like CNN, drawing criticism from all sides.

He emerges a natural spokesperson, testifying at the UN Convention Against Torture in Geneva and leading marches at Ferguson October. But his high profile threatens to both derail his musical career and splinter Hands Up United.

I love my people…people I don't know, people I've never met, people I may never see. I love them enough to make sure they have the right to live without fear of dying every day.” – Kayla Reed

Kayla Reed is one of many who found a renewed sense of purpose in seeking justice for Mike Brown. On August 10th she drives Tef Poe out to the protests and joins in. Shortly afterwards, she leaves her job as a pharmacy technician. Day after day she takes to the street and protest soon becomes a way of life. Magnetic and humorous, Kayla is tapped to head the Organization for Black Struggle, a 35 year-old St. Louis civil rights organization. Over time she takes bolder stands, instigating night actions and direct confrontations with the police. A major turning point comes when she leads an occupation of the steps at St. Louis city hall and police pepper spray protesters. Is she putting people needlessly at risk? As she battles her own doubts, her greater responsibilities require her to lead, which means she must face scrutiny from within the Movement.
I don’t know what year it is... but it’s not 2014.” – Tory Russell
Tory Russell is a father and teacher who sees himself as a public servant. A charismatic speaker, he illuminates the systemic issues facing St. Louis. When Mike Brown is killed, Tory leads a march to the Ferguson police department to seek answers and is thwarted by an unresponsive local government. He tells the disappointed crowd it will take more than a day to get 500 years worth of answers, and vows to continue the fight. Reimagining the dilapidated community of North St. Louis, Tory proposes a solution from the ground up. He launches a Books & Breakfast program and takes over a building to provide cultural resources and basic necessities for the community.


Sabaah Folayan (Writer/Director, Producer) is an activist and storyteller born and raised in South Central LA. As an advocate at Rikers Island, Folayan interviewed incarcerated people about their experiences with trauma. She later helped organize The Millions March, one of the largest marches for racial justice in New York history, in response to the non-indictment of the police officer who choked Eric Garner to death. Folayan entered the world of storytelling through theater, attending the Lee Strasberg Institute of Theatre and Film as a teenager, and performing as a member of the Black Theater Ensemble while a pre-med student at Columbia University. In September 2014, she went to Ferguson with cinematographer Lucas Alvarado-Farrar to learn the truth behind the dramatic scenes playing out on the news. Hearing the stories from the community inspired her to embark on her directorial debut Whose Streets? landing her a coveted spot on Filmmaker Magazine’s annual “25 New Faces of Independent Film” along with Co-Director Damon Davis. Folayan recently directed an episode of Glamour Magazine + The Girl Project’s Get Schooled web series presented by Maybelline.
