Cleveland, Ohio, is one of the most racially divided cities in America. Unchecked police corruption, rampant poverty, and lethal transphobia rain devastating effects on its most vulnerable citizens. But if the subjects of this powerful, moving documentary have anything to say about it, these systems of inequality—and those upholding them—are in for the fight of their lives. Told in intersecting chapters, DISPATCHES FROM CLEVELAND is an indictment of injustice, a clarion call for real change, and an electrifying portrait of the activists building a movement across racial and gender identities and making a difference.
