About the film:

Rocks, 2019
Director: Sarah Gavron
Running time: 1h 33m

Rocks is a teenage girl with big dreams for the future, loyal fun friends and an adoring, though mischievous, little brother Emmanuel. Rocks enjoys school (as much as any teenager does) and lives a full vibrant life in East London with her team of London-centric female best friends. Rocks’ world is turned upside down when she returns from school to find her mum gone, having left some cash and a note offering little explanation except that she is sorry. Determined to stick with her brother and avoid being taken into care against all odds, Rocks leaves her home and hides in pockets of East London. As each day becomes tougher and her secret harder to hide, Rocks starts to push away those who love her and her friendship group begins to fracture. When the authorities finally catch up with her, there is really only one source of support for her to turn to: her friends. A film about the joy, resilience and spirit of girlhood.

The event is organised in cooperation with Ubuntu Film Club, The Museum of Impossible Forms, and New Theatre Helsinki.

The event is produced with the support of Anna Lindh Foundation and co-funded by the European Union.
