Farringdon students take part in domestic abuse film
A group of youngsters, who are all part of ‘Farringdon performing arts group showstoppers’ took part in creating a film on domestic violence. They were given the opportunity to work alongside ‘Benidorm’ star-Crissy Rock! The hard-hitting film, called ‘violence breeds violence’, was written by Sheila Quigley to show the tragic impact that domestic violence can have. It was directed by Amy Marie Pink, from Pink entertainment, and Martin Owens-Cairns. It is now available on YouTube. Jacee, 13, and Vinnie, 11, star in the film as the perpetrators children alongside Alex, 11, Liam, 11 and Jordie, 13. Ebony-Rae plays the victim and Martin Owens, a professional TV extra, plays the victim’s husband. Crissy Rock plays the grandmother of a child who was involved in a fight. All children involved received extra credit on their IMDb website. It shows how the son goes on to be violent, as the father did. Miss Pink said, ‘I am really pleased for the group to have been given this opportunity and we are in the process of sending it out to domestic violence organisations to use it as a potential TV campaign!’
