One of our favourite films, shot in Tottenham after the 2011 riots.  10 years later we thought it would be worth another watch.
When the film came out Director Notes said - 
'Under the banner of the First Light scheme, director Peter Snelling worked with volunteers from Northside Youth Club in Edmonton, London to create the documentary Braveface. As well as operating the cameras, recording sound and writing the film’s music, the youth volunteers formulated questions in an attempt to get at their own answers as to the ‘why’ of the riots. They may have come away with a similar pool of responses to those discussed in the popular press – consumerism, lack of discipline, diminished life opportunities – but it’s good to see someone finally ask them what they think.'
