I bring to you a short film which was directed and shot by Sebastian Thiel; founder of UpshotTV. Illegal Activity differs away from the traditional urban films that we are provided since KidultHood.
It still bares a message at the end and morals are provided throughout but it is carried out in a different fashion; especially with the fact it is only 15 minutes long.
Just look out for the amazing message at the end. Brilliantly done!
Here’s a little synopsis of the film:
Illegal Activity is an action-packed drama set in a rough housing estate in London, yet nothing on the block is quite how it seems. We follow Winston a street level dealer and his crew for one day, witnessing the devastating effect their trade has on the block. Society is crumbling, families unravel and desperation causes internal conflict. The need to satisfy this addiction spirals out of control. Police are closing in and are determined to infiltrate the hierarchy in an attempt to put a stop to this Illegal Activity.
A couple weeks back we posted the soundtrack mixtape, which features artists such as Lady Leshurr, Benjamin AD and more. Now you can enjoy the soundtracks within the film above. Enjoy.
