BLACK SHEEP

Black Sheep follows two brothers from the North of England and their adolescent curiosity for the EDL - a right-wing street protest movement against radical Islam in Britain. This observational documentary portrays the working class youth culture in the North and the impact that the EDL has on these impressionable young men. Watch Sam and Jack decide for themselves whether this organisation, that some call racist and xenophobic, is a cause worth fighting for.

Black Sheep caused a stir amongst last year’s festival circuit for its controversial depiction of riots in Northern England. It’s an eclectic mix of genre and a masterclass in the craft of short filmmaking as its own unique, succinct cinematic form.                                                          - LSFF
