WHAT YOU GONNA DO WHEN THE WORLD’S ON FIRE?

a film by Roberto Minervini

Italy, USA, France | 123’ | b/n | DCP | 2018


Synopsis

What You Gonna Do When the World’s on Fire? is the story of a community of black people in the American South during the summer 2017, when a string of brutal killings of black men sent shockwaves throughout the country. A meditation on the state of race in America, this film is an intimate portrait into the lives of those who struggle for justice, dignity, and survival in a country not on their side.
