POWER to CHANGE
We are very excited to invite you to this first public screening of 'Power to Change' - a compelling new documentary that follows the lives of ordinary Londoners as they move beyond the past with inner strength, circumspection and wisdom.
In a time where youth violence is on the rise across the country, and with the poverty gap only increasing, this is a unique film that looks at the simplest solution: the innate goodness of a human being, who will make the right choices given the encouragement and tools to do so. Sometimes all it takes is one person, one act, one choice, to change the trajectory of a lifetime.
The film tells the stories of four people: EJ a young man drawn into gang culture from an early age, Lorraine a grieving Mother who lost her son to knife-crime as he saved another boy, Errol a repeat offender with 74 previous convictions, and Nate a former gang-member who was brutally stabbed by a childhood friend. The stories are woven together by Kaysen, a teacher, who passionately believes in supporting young people.
Adding a unique perspective to this mix we hear from author and world-renowned speaker Prem Rawat who has dedicated his life to sharing a message of peace, and whose work in prisons in the UK and around the world has had a remarkable impact.
This is the Premiere Screening of Power to Change. The event will include guest speakers, spoken word, and Q&As with the director.
