PATOIS: The New Orleans International Human Rights Film Festival and V.O.T.E. present: 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, this award-winning documentary 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. Directed by Bhawin Suchak and Ira McKinley. ------------------------------------------------------- This screening is co-sponsored by the NOLA Chapter of BYP 100. Black Youth Project 100 (BYP 100) is an activist member-based organization of Black 18-35 year olds, dedicated to creating justice and freedom for all Black people.
