We are just a bunch of kids who want to highlight how much the knife crime crisis in London is destroying lives.
We want it to stop.
On 8th March 2019, actor Idris Elba posted a message on Instagram asking entertainers to make videos to highlight the knife crime crisis. This film was made in response to his message. We might not be celebrities, but at least we are trying to do something to get people talking, to get politicians to take action. And most importantly, to get young men thinking. Don't leave your home carrying a knife. It's not worth it.
Real life is not a movie.
Money raised will help us recoup the cost of making this short film, which was £523.
The film concept was thought up by actor Jack Cunningham-Nuttall. He was 17 years old at time of filming and is studying for A'Levels in London. Jack wanted to make a film that was cinematic, but tackled one of the hardest issues of his generation. He and his friends are the actors in the film.
