Directed by Glenn Holsten

This documentary film uses the power of storytelling to present the first-person experiences of men who participated in the George Floyd and Walter Wallace, Jr. protests in Philadelphia during the summer of 2020. The film honors the raw emotion caused by collective trauma, weaving together the intersecting stories of five different men of color from a variety of backgrounds in the city. After the trying months of the Summer of 2020,  they ask . . . what now? 

There will be 30-minute talkback after the screening.

This screening begins the tour of screening throughout the Greater Philadelphia Area.  If you would like to schedule a screening of this film for your organization, email us at marketing@firstpersonarts.org.
