Trailer for The Throwaways
The Throwaways is a personal exploration of the devastating impact of police brutality and mass incarceration on the black community told through the eyes of formerly incarcerated activist filmmaker Ira McKinley. With rawness, urgency and power, the film speaks directly to the national movement rising up to fight back against a wave of police killings of black people in America.
Timely and provocative, The Throwaways is more just than an illumination of marginalized people at their weakest moments; it is a call to action, a story of directly engaging in the fight for justice.
