The film has been entered for the Charity Film Awards.

HERstory: Enfield

Filmed by Colin Francis, Niburu.

ecyps logoVoices From The Frontline funding secured through Rosa, the UK fund for women and girls enabled ECYPS to create a special advocacy piece celebrating the BAME women of ENFIELD.

This film aimed to shine a bright light amidst the negative press shadowing Enfield and showcased the wonderful work that women do in the borough for all women and girls.

Montell’s vision for the film was to empower and inspire the people of Enfield to combat the low aspirations and particular knife crime that became rife within the borough.

The North of London is one of the highest ranked boroughs of youth knife crime and this dark cloud of negative perception creates a spiralling downhill community. By showcasing the positive works within the borough, the film aims to brighten the aspiration so that people that live there and beyond.
