What You Gonna Do When the World's on Fire?

What You Gonna Do When the World's on Fire?

A Feature film by Roberto Minervini

Release in France : 05/12/2018


    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.
