We here at the Triplex Cinema have been looking for ways to continue to deliver quality movies to you, our loyal supporters, during this challenging time.
While we cannot project any movies here at the theater, there are some alternatives evolving in order to allow you to see some quality films streamed by the distributor themselves. So far we've been able to team with a couple of participating distributors and using our links to stream their content helps us to remain viable.
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 are the story. WHOSE STREETS? is a powerful battle cry from a generation fighting, not for their civil rights, but for the right to live.
