We are currently making a social realist documentary about the area of Tottenham: the first in its style feature documentary on the area in anamorphic 4K format.
“Being a resident, Tottenham has played a big part in my life. It has such a diverse set of people, with many different ethnics. As a film director, I would like to encapture its spirit: attitude, creativity, social diversity (being challenged by gentrification).
Now is an exciting time, and I feel the emergence of new people should be shown on camera. We would meet people who are poor from single parent families, broken homes, to show their story which is very rarely told.
I feel they need a voice too.” Sean Reilly, Director
Tottenham is a very interesting diverse area and has been placed on the map from the London riots in 2011.
We, as filmmakers, film The new Tottenham from all aspects. We are giving way to all areas, where most film makers wouldn’t dare, from violence through council estate teenagers (what are their hopes and dreams, will they stay away from crime?), to the positive of the new breed, artists, clubs, bars and restaurants owners.
What is their take on the area and how so they visualise the area. It is amazing to see so different people living in the same area with completely different views of the area. We film this along with the launch of the football season.
