NOTES ABOUT BRIXTON
How can Brixton and the nuances that make it up be portrayed? Brixton is community. Brixton is Jamaica, Afghanistan, Ethiopia - a bit European,a bit Caribbean and a bit African. It smells of jerk chicken and Indian roti. Brixton is also music. But mostly, Brixton is change: its dark past leads to a bright, SOHO-stylish future. How can you describe Brixton to someone who has never been there? Perhaps the best way of showing this diversity is describing Brixton in all the different ways it could be described - in 5 minutes.
Notes about Brixton is the approach of someone who has never been there before: the filmmaker herself.
