SPACE Gallery Asks “Whose Streets?”

{ Monday, September 18th & Wednesday, September 20th } Sabaah Folayan screens her Ferguson documentary Whose Streets? in Portland.

When unarmed teenager Michael Brown was killed by police and left in the street for hours, vigils and protests filled the streets of Ferguson, Missouri. Ferguson marked a historical moment of injustice and outrage that, like many similar instances of anti-Black police violence, spiraled into slanted commentary from mainstream media. SPACE Gallery artist-in-residence Sabaah Folayan cuts through the noise with Whose Streets?, her new documentary co-directed with Damon Davis that takes an unflinching look at the Ferguson uprising. The film explores Ferguson from the ground level, chronicling activists, parents, artists, and teachers as they come together in the face of occupation by a militarized national guard.

SPACE Gallery—which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year—will screen the film in association with the Freedom Side Film Series presented with the ACLU of Maine. Screenings will take place on Monday, September 18th and Wednesday, September 20th at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 6:30 p.m. Folayan will be present both nights.
