Wale

Barnaby Blackburn
United Kingdom, 2018, 22.32 min.

In United Kingdom.
Includes violence and adult language.

An 18 year old youth offender is trying to start his own business as a mobile mechanic. But enterprise isn't so easy when you're a young, black male with a criminal past. Wale deals with issues of social injustice, racial discrimination and the frustrations surrounding individuals trying to reimagine themselves in modern London.

Director's Statement

Wale was made in light of a number of deaths of young black men at the hands of the police in East London in 2016 and 2017. At its heart, this is a film about societal injustice and racial abuse. In the current social climate, where bigotry and intolerance is on the rise globally, it drives me to believe that stories like Wale must be expressed on screen as frequently and bravely as possible.

Category: Drama.
Themes: Crime, Family, Social Justice, World Cinema.
