Welcome back to Storyhouse. We put customer safety at the top of everything we do, however at this time that means a little more than making sure you don’t get struck inadvertently by an actor! It now also means keeping 2 metres apart and wearing a face covering on the move inside the building. We will be asking all our customer to both enjoy themselves and to stick to some easy to follow guidelines. Find out how we’re keeping you safe here.
Created by: Sarah Gavron, Theresa Ikoko, Claire Wilson
Starring: Bukky Bakray, Kosar Ali, D’angelou Dsei Kissiedu, Ruby Stokes
The third feature from Sarah Gavron (Suffragette, BrickLane) is the story of a teenage girl growing up in London’s East End. Rocks (Bukky Bakray) has big dreams for the future, great friends, and an adoring younger brother. But when her unstable mother leaves home her world is turned upside down. Uniquely crafted by a majority female creative team in collaboration with mostly first-time actors, Rocks is a film about the joy, resilience and spirit of girlhood.
The screenings on Friday 25 September at 8pm and Saturday 26 September at 1.30pm will includes a pre-recorded introduction and post screening discussion hosted by Birds’ Eye View director-at-large by Mia Bays with ROCKS director Sarah Gavron, associate director Anu Henriques and writers Theresa Ikoko & Claire Wilson.
