On the 4th day of the riots, in the face of the devastation and destruction, surrounded by negativity and misconception, 19 passionate young people from across London came together to take positive action. The critically acclaimed, eye opening documentary Riot from Wrong is a result of that positive action. Click here to watch the trailer.
'This film breaks the mould of conventional perceptions peddled by the mainstream media. It opens doors that have remained firmly closed on a generation which feels disenfranchised and disempowered. Made by young people at street level, who have access and credibility, not by pontificating pundits. It is set to become an historic and definitive document. A resource which should be viewed, by all those who care about the restoration of an inclusive and effective democracy.' Michael Mansfield QC
'The best documentaries on the August Riots bar none'. Adrian Dunbar – Actor & Director
'One thing I learned from Riot from Wrong is that 14 young people can get closer to the truth than 90% of working journalists'. Everyone in the UK who has ever expressed an opinion on the riots (namely everyone) needs to see this as soon as possible. Dan Hancox – Author: Kettled Youth – Journalist: Guardian
'Great documentary piece, creatively and editorially. Good narrative and most importantly emotional and engaging.' Tanya Mukherjee – Head of Diversity: ITV
'It was a very impressive film and demonstrated a unique insight into some of the causes of the riots. These young people could be the leading documentary makers of the future!' Ayshea Buksh – Reporter BBC London TV news
