We chose to make ‘Why’ as we saw a lot of potential in exploring the tension between the two characters & their differing attitudes to the riots. It was a pleasure to film such a short yet poignant piece, and eagerly look forward to seeing the quality of the other films directed utilising this script.

It was produced, shot & edited in 4 days by Amvid Productions. Credit must be given to all of the crew who were willing to give up their Sunday on such a short ad-hoc notice, and the actors who really developed the characters above and beyond our expectations!

    There are many different views about the London riots of 2011. This short film says a lot and says it well, without trying to impose a viewpoint on the audience. It's economical with words and images, which makes it a powerful and evocative piece of film making.

    Brilliant camera shots which capture that which words would have struggled to express.
    Clever adaptation.
    Subtle yet powerful.

    Top marks!

    I thought it was a brilliant piece of film - although as a mother and if time allowed I would personally debate with the child her behavior
