Bang Bang in Da Manor
London 2004


A social investigation into the disproportionate levels of violence and murder suffered by the black community of Britain, this documentary identifies the failure of the British educational system, the breakdown of family units, and consumerism/capitalism as significant contributory factors into this phenomenon. With interviews from gunmen, underground arms dealers, drug users and victims of the violence, the film attempts to define the social environment which conditions and nurtures the desire to consume and destroy.

Filmed over six months, Bang Bang In Da Manor has been described as the most graphic and disturbing documentary ever made in Britain.
