Gavron and Ikoko talk to FRED about their collaboration to depict a generation that is not being seen and heard. Both of them describe the daily work with the young actresses in the film.

Rocks: Rocks (15) is a teenage girl with big dreams for the future, loyal fun friends and an adoring, though mischievous, little brother, Emmanuel (7). Rocks enjoys school (as much as any teenager does) and lives a full vibrant life in East London with her team of London-centric best mates. Rocks’ world is turned upside down when she returns from school to find her mum gone, leaving some cash and a note offering little explanation except that she is sorry.
