'Whose Streets?'

The distributor is planning a summer theatrical release to coincide with the anniversary of Mike Brown’s murder.

Magnolia has acquired the Sundance documentary Whose Streets? for North America.

The doc is the feature film debut for filmmakers Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis. It centers on the activist in Ferguson, Mo., who continues to fight for racial equality in the wake of Mike Brown's killing.

The Hollywood Reporter's review called the film “an essential testament to the commitment of activists whose credo is ‘We have nothing to lose but our chains.’”

Magnolia is planning to release the film theatrically this summer, to coincide with the anniversary of Brown’s murder. A film festival run is planned for this spring.

Jennifer MacArthur and Flannery Miller produced the doc. 

Submarine and Thompson Bukher negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
