ONE MILE AWAY

Inner cities are little war zones in which small wars are fought. Gangs of young men stab and shoot each other for straying into the wrong postcode. But now, two gang leaders want to make peace. Will they succeed or fail? 'One Mile Away' focuses on two extraordinary characters from two rival gangs. They have decided it is time to end the violence. This is not a film about youth workers, police or outsiders. This is up close to the young men who are right at the heart of British gang violence and who wish to change things from the inside out. No one knows how their project will evolve. Will they manage to put a stop to the killing or will entrenched tribalism defeat them? 'One Mile Away' was filmed between the two gangs' territories, in the postcode ‘war zones’ of B21 and B6, and scooped the Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature in 2012. ★★★★ "Genuinely eye-opening" - Dave Calhoun, Time Out "Woolcock has achieved something exceptional" - Philip Kemp, Sight & Sound
