Limited tickets available for showing of documentary film, Whose Streets?

Limited free tickets for Whose Streets? are available for students through the Social Justice Institute (SJI), the community partner for the film.

Whose Streets? is a documentary film playing during the Cleveland International Film Festival at Tower City Cinema.

When an unarmed 18-year-old African-American named Michael Brown was shot and killed in Ferguson, Missouri, black residents—caught in a decades-long struggle with what they considered an oppressive police force known for racist tendencies and excessive tactics—unified and protested. Many thought the media spun a misleading narrative and Ferguson police stormed through neighborhoods.

The entire terrifying episode unfolds in a powerful and gut-wrenching documentary.

There are two screenings of the film: Saturday, April 8 at 9:15 p.m. and Sunday, April 9 at 1:50 p.m.

The Sunday screening will be followed by a Film Forum panel discussion featuring SJI Director Rhonda Y. Williams.

To request free tickets, email Lisa Kollins at and specify the desired screening time.

Discounted tickets for other Cleveland International Film Festival offerings are available to SJI supporters and the Case Western Reserve community by using the discount code SJICWRU.
