With extraordinary ambition and imagination, a performance company of young people from Cumbria, worked with TKP directors & a range of professional artists to create the film ‘Forge the Future’.
Written and self-filmed by young people on mobile phones during lockdown, the film offers a unique insight into the impact of the pandemic on young people and their mental health. The group used a timeline of the year 2020 to structure & guide the piece, encapsulating the mood & feelings of each month in a raw & honest way.
Professional Film Maker Nick Farrimond, guided the performance company in the creation of their film work & brought all the material together in the final edit. The original and emotive sound score, created by Lee Affen and members of the performance company, was inspired by the film’s content & themes.
