Everyone remembers where they were when the 2011 riots happened. Especially if you lived in London. Shops were burnt, looted, and cars turned over. Thousands ran to the streets supposedly speaking about injustice and the provocation sent shockwaves through the community.
But what happened? Why? Because the unarmed Mark Duggan was killed.
The Hard Stop looks at the human beings behind the headlines and takes a look at the friends closest to Duggan – Marcus Knox and Kurtis Henville. The men try to get on with their lives and speak about the spark of discrimination that led to the flames of London. The movie also looks at Duggan, far away from the thug that police and media painted him.
The intricate documentary looks to be completely powerful and a must-see for everyone. Documentary’s like this shine light on people we brutalised in the media.
