this is real //short doc

At only two minutes this very contemporary documentary about poverty and the struggles of the young to grow up in 21st Century urban Britain still made an impact. It’s an angry yet poetic view into the world of young men in East London and was very different to anything else I saw in the documentary category at this year’s ASFF. One&Other
