Synopsis

Duwayne Brooks witnessed the fatal stabbing of his friend Stephen Lawrence in 1993. Knife crime is on the rise in the UK and it is young peoples’ lives that are being cut short, often by other teenagers. Brookes examines the causes of this growing violence and talks to both the perpetrators of violent crime and the families affected by it to try and understand the impact it has on the UK. As for Brooks, he still carries the trauma of losing his friend in such a horrific way, a sorrow that fuels him to educate others and fight institutional failures. It’s a frank and personal examination of Britain’s growing knife crisis.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
