'A Dream For The Future'
4 July 2024 5 mins 43s
Twist and shirt.
by Melissa Roberts

The future’s something we’ve all been thinking about this week, and this charming documentary short features a group of South London teens doing just that. KODE Director Peter Franklyn Banks interviews Toky, Leyla, Jayson, Georgia, Emily and Jason, and captures what leaving school really means - leaving childhood.

The film highlights the younger generation’s concerns about the kind of world they’re entering as they move towards adulthood, before finding a more optimistic, yet incredibly grounded tone, by focussing on their hopes for the future.

The advice “embarrassment doesn’t exist… only you will care” and “be a well-rounded person” could just as easily have come from readers here being stopped on the street by Banks’s crew. And there’s something beautiful in that.

Listening to these young people reflect on their lives - when they still have so much living ahead of them - is given an already-nostalgic touch by shooting on film and the choices made in post. The team has also managed to talent scout the next generation of filmmakers, and DAVID looks forward to adding Leyla Adeyemi’s cinematographer credit to her next project.
