Video killed the gun and knife war

…Or so budding young film-makers and authorities across the country are no doubt hoping, if the sheer avalanche of knife and gun crime-themed films being made are anything to go by. You’ve only got to log on to YouTube or Bebo to see that a huge number of young people are fighting back – with video.

And in the Young Southwark partnership’s short film, which you can watch by clicking below, the horror of what happens when you mess with street weapons is artistically played out in a moving and dramatic piece of work, showing the effects the situation has on different characters through clever use of split screen editing.
