Creating Hackney as Home:
Five reflections on a London borough


Monét's film

Growing Up and Out of Space

My film was inspired by a dream I had early on in the project. I have tried to recreate that image in my film, using camera angles to give the perspective of a child. In my film you will be following me through the ages of six to sixteen, and the differences that occur across these ages. My dialogue is partly spoken word and partly my poetry, which gives a sense of my personal feelings over this time.
