This film is about recent protests that have taken place at Windrush Square, an open space in Brixton, South London. Windrush square is a place of local cultural and community focus. The protests that have take place in the square have a wider resonance to the rest of London by focusing on issues that have a significance to the whole city: gentrification of the area, rising price of living, government funding cuts.

This is one of three films for Windows Into Protest, a project that looks at protest in three European countries; UK, Turkey and Ukraine. The project was run by Kettle Partnership. Find out more info here.

I directed, shot and edited this film. It was filmed on a very wet and rainy Saturday afternoon. Despite that, it was very eye-opening and exciting to learn about a space I’ve walked past very often. The film was produced by Chocolate Films.
