Students involved in the Princeâ€™s Trust scheme are set to unveil a brand new anti-knife crime film at a Birmingham cinema tomorrow (Thursday 10 July).
The 35 minute movie, which has been put together in partnership with West Midlands Police, highlights the dangers of knife crime and aims to educate young people about how their choices can change their lives.
All of the footage, including drama scenes and interviews with emergency services have been captured and edited by students on the scheme.
PC Ian Northcott, who has helped the students to produce the film, said: “Everyone involved in this project showed a lot of maturity and a fantastic work ethic to make it happen.
“The film itself shows how easily young people can be involved in knife crime and includes heart-wrenching interviews with people whose lives have been affected by people carrying weapons.
“We hope that this video will make a difference and will make youngsters think twice before leaving the house with a blade. There is no acceptable level of violent crime and any offence involving a knife can shatter lives.”
The film will premiere at the Odeon Cinema in New Street, Birmingham tomorrow at 10.30am. Anyone who wants to attend should emailÂ [email protected]
