ONE MILE AWAY + Director and Producer Q&A

Thursday 21st March| Rich Mix | 8.00pm | £7 (£5 conc)

Penny Woolcock

UK - 2012 - 90mins

Penny Woolcock's compelling documentary uses footage shot during the summer riots, interviews and hip-hop performances to weave together the fascinating story of two opposing gang members' struggles to call a truce.

Following on from her hip-hop musical, One Day, Woolcock revisits protagonist, Dylan Dufus, as his real life self. Dylan and Shabba, members of rival Birmingham gangs, are catalysed by the filmmaker's presence to attempt, against the odds, to change gang culture from the inside out.

Set in inner city Birmingham where post-code rivalry is rife and gun crime is an everyday occurrence ONE MILE AWAY tells the human side of gang violence.

A riveting portrait of the complex, contentious reality of the streets, and the courage it takes to make a difference, it could well be this year's most important British film. - Time Out

After the film we will be joined by Director Penny Woolcock and Producer James Purnell for a Q&A session.

    Sorry. It's the old problem. Can't be in two places at the same time. Not yet, anyway.
