A compelling tale of courage and determination with a smooth hip-hop soundtrack. Dylan and Shabba, members of rival Birmingham gangs, attempt to broker a peace agreement after being introduced by filmmaker Penny Woolcock, who had directed Dylan in the drama 1 Day (also screening). After the screening on 24 June, there will be a Q&A with Penny Woolcock, producer James Purnell and the young men in the documentary.
Join us for the big live performance from the One Mile Away stars;
Zimbo, Shabba, YT & Tosh along with other unsigned hype from the underground scene. Bringing the midlands to Scotland, guaranteed to be a great night. With Dylan Duffus (One Mile Away, 1 Day) hosting the evening & music being supplied by guest urban DJ from 1Extra playing UK rap, grime, RnB, and house.
Join us for our party celebrating ‘better living, pure good vibes we’re bringing’. Admission to the party comes with your film ticket.
