OPENING FILM : OBEY
As London slides towards a time of violent social unrest, on the estates of East London, a young man's life is torn apart by a love for a girl from a different place. The clashing of two very different worlds results in a tragic love story in the heady days leading up to dramatic social unrest. OBEY is about Leon, a nineteen-year-old boy with an alcoholic mother who has grown up in and out of care. Oppressed at home and hunted on the streets by local gangs, Leon’s existence is suffocating, and all too real. When he meets Twiggy, a beautiful blond girl living in a local squat something stirs inside of him. He is in love for the first time and for a moment escapes the reality of his unrelenting existence. But naïve to the affluent world supporting Twiggy’s hedonistic lifestyle, Leon is unprepared when Twiggy no longer wants him around. Leon withdraws allowing his raw and unhampered emotions to take over in the blind fight against his unjust existence with terrifying and brutal consequences. Raw and uncompromising, OBEY draws inspiration from films such as Catch Me Daddy, Fish Tank, This is England and KIDS.
