George Amponsah will discuss the ups and downs of making an independently financed, politically charged documentary feature in the UK. He will show clips from the rough cut of his new film in this informal seminar. George will be joined by the films producer, Dionne Walker and editor Michael Aaglund.
Down by Law is a compelling and timely observational documentary following several years in the lives of two of the closest friends of Mark Duggan, the man whose death at the hands of armed police sparked the UK riots in 2011.
The film charts the efforts to go straight of former Tottenham gang members Marcus and Kurtis as they deal with bereavement, imprisonment and poverty, and whilst waiting for a sense of justice for their dead friend.
This event is part of the Open City Docs Festival.
