Our take

Chronicling the protests that follow the shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis’s unflinching documentary lends a voice to a grieving community. Featuring a wealth of amateur footage, the film is a raw, ground-level look at the escalation of state violence.
