Ntantu walks through his past and choices he has made, part of the Writing Britain Films to produce short films written by young people, their films to reflect their sense of place, belonging, hopes, dreams they have for the future. Produced by Studio12 in association with Left Eye Blind.
The powerful film takes place across the entire city. Ntantu’s life in three places. Three times. Three stages. Everything David talks about we see. Every place. Every character. Whether that be in the office daily grind. The pub’s ill defined. The successive waves of crime.
This is a short film with it’s script of poetry. High gloss but lit in the street. Urban orange and blue daylight.

WRITING BRITAIN CHALLENGES FIRST TIME WRITERS TO CREATE A SPOKEN WORD FILM THAT EXPLORES LANGUAGE AND NOTIONS BASED ON THEIR UPBRINGING, THEIR CULTURE AND HOW THEY SEE THE WORLD TODAY. SET IN LOCATIONS CLOSE TO THE LYRICISTS’ HEARTS THE FILM DEPICTS THE CHALLENGES, CHOICES AND DIFFICULTIES THAT YOUNG PEOPLE FACE TODAY.
