London to Brighton

Essentially a chase film, with its two female protagonists – twenty-five-year-old prostitute Kelly and 11-year-old runaway Joanne – heading to the coast to avoid violent retribution from a coldly charismatic gangster and a gun-toting pimp way out of his depth, London to Brighton evokes a dog-eat-dog underworld in grimy London locations – Bermondsey, Dalston – that rarely make it into cinema. (Kieron Corless) The aim was to create a piece of work that bled reality, that created a world generally ignored in today’s society, a world full of characters that we pass by every day. Combined with the genre element to the film, it is a gritty look at the subject of paedophilia and the consequences for people who allow themselves to be part of such a terrible world.
