Hi I’m Shola Amoo I’m a writer/director. I graduated from The National Film and Television School where I currently work.

As a lifelong south Londoner I’ve seen the communities I’ve lived in grow and change. Gentrification has taken hold of London.  This film will focus on areas such as Peckham, Brixton and Elephant & Castle where I currently live.

The housing crisis has meant that many people are facing eviction and being removed from their communities. “Reclaim Brixton” was a locally led protest that showed people’s dissatisfaction with many of the changes.  It placed a spotlight on those in the front lines and echoed people’s fear of losing the diversity that makes places like Brixton a vibrant area to live.

Our story follows Nina, a young stifled artist as she returns to her community after a long absence – she is soon accused of being a symbol of gentrification.

We follow her as she strives to create a piece of art that can bring her community together. On her journey we speak to real people affected by Gentrification in Brixton, blurring the line between fiction and reality with shades of Afrofuturism.

We shot some amazing scenes during Reclaim Brixton but WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO FINISH PRODUCTION. We need £7000 to cover the remaining costs, including, crew, locations and equipment.

We have some amazing perks waiting for you –  so check them out!

THE IMPACT

REPRESENTING DIVERSE ARTISTS
Recently statistics have shown that since 2006 Minorities working in the UK media has declined by 30 per cent.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-29498999

The lack of diversity has seen people such as Lenny Henry and the group Act for Change http://www.act-for-change.com launch campaigns to address it.

We’re proud to boast a cast and crew that reflects the diverse nature of London.  It’s time we take control of our own image and tell our stories.

FEMALE LEAD WITH AGENCY

In the mainstream there aren’t enough stories with Female leads with agency,  with this project we are re-addressing that balance in front and behind the camera. This film will pass the Bechdel test. http://bechdeltest.com/

WORKING WITH LOCAL CHARITY TO HELP YOUNG PEOPLE WORK

We will be working with local charity Iconic steps http://www.iconicsteps.co.uk.We’ll be mentoring young people whilst working on the project, gaining them skills for employment. This is another thing I’m passionate about. I’ve been involved with working with young people in several charities in South London such as http://in-spire.org.uk/

We’ve already raised some funds privately and have support from institutions like The National Film and Television School https://nfts.co.uk/

This will help make our modest budget go a long way.  All of the money we raise with this campaign will be seen on screen.

So help us

1. Place a microscope on Gentrification

2.  Tell the stories from the BAME community in the UK

3. Support young people to gain employment in the industry

With your support we can achieve all this and much more!
