Summer 2011 and the country is in crisis, as riots spread through towns and cities like a virus. Kyle, a hard working 17 year old from Liverpool, is about to be thrown into a very difficult situation.
This film briefly explores some of the likely contributory factors to the causes of the riots, through the eyes of Kyle. Issues such as unemployment, government cuts, gang culture, youth stereotypes, and criminal opportunism.
I produced, directed and edited this film. It was shot over two days on a Canon 7d/550d and edited in FCP7.
