As part of the Birds’ Eye View Community Fund, Birds’ Eye View and the Albany are coming together to deliver two free screenings of the BAFTA Award winning film Rocks. The screening has been made possible thanks to The National Lottery Community Fund, distributed by City Bridge Trust and Altitude.
Rocks, starring BFI Rising Star Award winner Bukky Bakray is a popular teenager with big dreams for the future, brilliant friends and an adoring little brother Emmanuel (D’angelou Osei Kissiedu). But her world is turned upside down when her mother suddenly leaves. Determined to stick with her brother and avoid being taken into care against all odds, Rocks leaves her home and hides around London with the help of her loyal – or maybe not so loyal – friends. As each day becomes tougher, Rocks pushes away those who love her and her friendship squad begins to fracture. When the authorities finally catch up with her, there is only one solution: her friends. Rocks and her girls embark on a courageous, joyous and at times precarious journey, bouncing between moments of wisdom and crippling innocence. A film about the resilience and spirit of girlhood.
Rocks also stars BIFA Award winner Kosar Ali.
Rocks is free to attend with the option to donate to the Albany after the film screening.
