Project summary

Produced as part of the crime prevention A.C.T.I.O.N project, by the non profit organisation Heart of Pitsea. This film was produced to raise awareness of the subject of Knife crime. The idea was to use a spoken word performance to communicate the issue and how it affects the victim, perpetrator & wider community.

However, by chance he encounters the killer again and we realise since the murder Ashley himself has been carrying a knife for his own self protection.
