Former gang member turned actor and film director Fredi Nwaka showcased his short film on gang life (If Only) in London at the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (Bafta) earlier this month.

In December of last year I posted a piece about the film and Fredi’s new organisation C.R.I.M.E (Creating Role Models In Media Enterprise), which works with ex offenders, gang members and troubled teens, and turns their stories into short films. CLICK HERE to read if you missed it.

  1. gwarn freddi…. that is a man i can say i watched evolve….. archbishop tenisons and archbishop micheal ramsey schools were around the corner from eachother … and its good to see a man get some kind of appreciation for his work..

  2. Really happy to see this and Fredi doing something postive, sad that it has to be a clique. In reality I just don’t watch films like this no more because I’m bored of them. I would love to see a postive black film win an award.
