The Brixton Uprisings

A two year project collecting stories about life in South London in the 1980s. Over 100 young people recorded 26 Interviews, and created “The Brixton Uprisings” a 30 minute documentary about life in the area in the 1980s. We also made a short fictional film “I am Michael” based on the events leading up to the 1985 Brixton riots.

The full interviews can be viewed by clicking the link below the documentary.

The Project was funded by The Heritage Lottery Fund, Southwark Council and the Clothworkers Foundation.
