I get the feeling that ‘Made In Brixton’ will focus mainly on the upper middle class (wealthy) residents who have moved in to the area over the past 15 years and the area’s ‘regeneration’.

The illegitimate, mixed-race daughter of a Captain in the Royal Navy finds her unique social standing become instrumental in the campaign to end slavery in England after meeting an idealistic young vicar’s son.
Belle is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizebeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral. Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet the color of her skin prevents her from fully participating in the traditions of her social standing. Left to wonder if she will ever find love, Belle falls for an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on change who, with her help, shapes Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.

This documentary is inspired by the book I’m A Gun. It addresses street violence and the psychological and physiological hold the nature of the gun has over our youths. Listen to some of our inspirational and out spoken members of our community share their views.
Judging from the trailer nothing new is being said that I haven’t heard before or discussed with others on numerous occasions. But I guess the documentary’s target audience is today’s male black youth.
However it is always good seeing rapper Akala. The man is genuine, knows what he is talking about and doesn’t hold back. But as well as listening to the views of artists like Akala I also want to hear from professionals within our community – teachers, social workers, solicitors, barristers, members from the police force and medical professionals who have to clean up the blood shed after another pointless shooting/stabbing is committed on the streets..
I hope that the other contributors featured in this documentary are not just made up of a bunch of ‘road men’ in their late twenties, thirties, forties and in some cases their fifties, who are still lost, never held down a full time job in their lives, still speak entirely in street slang and list their occupations as being a ‘recording artist’, ‘CEO of ‘(insert name of random community based foundation here), ‘youth worker’ or ‘mentor’.
I personally cannot take those types of ‘contributors’ seriously.
