Day 2:

Filmmaker Alexey Brazhnikov spent a day with protesters in Washington, DC, as they marched through the city in a #GeorgeFloyd demonstration. Protests have swept through the US since Floyd was killed by Minneapolis police officers. Some have devolved into widespread looting, destruction, and violence. Watch our raw footage from America’s capital, where thousands are taking to the streets daily. “The curfew that day [June 3] began at 11 pm but, even past midnight, there were over 1,000 demonstrators near the White House,” says Alexey. “There were no provocations, neither teargas nor rubber bullets were deployed.”
