The Throwaways is a timely and provocative first-person look at the devastating effects of mass incarceration, police brutality and poverty on black people in America. But it's more than a simple illumination of marginalized people at their weakest moments; this film is a call to action, a story of directly engaging in the fight for justice. The Throwaways lends an intimate perspective to the growing conversation about racism and the criminal justice system, and Ira's story of defiance and struggle is an empowering example of perseverance by any means necessary.
