Neasden teenagers make their film debut

Movie by youths screened at the Tricycle Theatre

A comedy film made by young people in Neasden has been screened at a Kilburn theatre.

The short movie follows the lives of two young men as they start their journey of employment - only to experience some surprises along the way.

The film, made by teenagers aged between 13 and 15 living on the Press Road Estate, was proudly premiered at Tricycle Theatre, in High Road, Kilburn, on Friday (15).

Over the past seven years, the Tricycle has been working with youths living on the estate to help improve their confidence, develop their filmmaking skills and realise their potential.

This is the second film young people from the estate have produced with the Tricycle.

Anna Myers, education and social inclusion manager, said: “All the young people have worked really hard to produce this film. They have been involved at every stage of the process and have shown a huge development in their skills and understanding of filmmaking. They should be very proud.”
