3D film "Irons In The Fire" is an inspirational documentary telling the story of 5 young Londoners who have overcoming real world adversity by learning a skill that is transforming their lives. It features 5 very different organisations who use dance, acting, sport, cooking and music to open the door of opportunity to 'at-risk' youth. The voice over is provided by the film's ambassador Idris Elba. The film features the luminous poetry George the Poet.


"The film resonated with me because I recognised things that I went through. It’s important these stories get out there.” Idris Elba, Narrator, Irons in the Fire

'All too often we receive an unwelcome barrage of negative press about young people. It’s therefore refreshing and inspiring to watch this film, and be reminded that up and down the country there are young people who are triumphing above adversity, and grabbing opportunities for self-expression, personal growth, and real achievement. And what a powerful reminder too, of the power of arts and culture – a great film!' Althea Efunshile, Deputy Chief Executive, Arts Council England
