THE HARD STOP
With Dir. George Amponsah
1100 - 1300 Saturday 30th July 2016
In 2011, the fatal shooting of Mark Duggan by the Metropolitan Police sparked intense riots in London. A jury's verdict of lawful killing—currently under appeal—shocked both his family and his community once again. Against this backdrop, The Hard Stop follows Mark's friends, Marcus and Kurtis, as they seek justice and try to get on with their daily lives. George Amponsah masterfully captures the fractured relationship between Tottenham and the Metropolitan Police as Marcus, Kurtis, and the community fight for justice. George presented this as a rough cut at the Quadrangle Film Festival in 2014 and we are really pleased welcome George back to show the finished version here at our new home in Suffolk.
