8 years ago today black, immigrant and working class youth rose up across England in what was called the ‘riots’ of August 2011. I made this doc about it featuring some leading advocates of our communities and other voices. Watch Sukant Chandan’s documentary below. Watch a Q&A with the director at the end of the page, which took place at the IHRC Bookshop & Gallery.
