The Throwaways

homelessness, mass incarceration, personal experience

The Throwaways is a documentary that chronicles the life and experiences of Ira McKinley, an activist documentarian whose interactions with police brutality, mass incarceration, and homelessness have led him to produce excellent work that illustrates the urgency of these racial justice issues.  This is a “must see” film for anyone interested in policing policies, mass incarceration, homelessness, and inequality.  The film features interviews from local activists in the Capital Region of New York State, as well as interviews from scholar Michelle Alexander.
