I Wonder Who

The first collaboration with UK Film-maker Scot Davidson, the writer / director of Monkey See Monkey Do, I WONDER WHO is a story and study of the undercurrent of accepted racism that exists within the UK today. Told from the central perspective of a typical racist who in the confines and security of his local pub, feels free to display ever more controversial racist outbursts. The surrounding cast of characters serve to display a cross section of society, some seeking to support his views, some seeking to challenge. Some seeking to argue intelligently and rationally. Some seeking to reinforce through racist remark and taunts.

Scot approached me to take on a purely Producer role for the film, something I had not done before, and I thoroughly enjoyed seeing him bring his script to life. Scouting for locations also highlighted the racism that exists as many establishments turned us away and cited racist views in the process.

maxresdefaultThe film stars Dave Oxley, long time Troika collaborator, in a tour-de-force performance that will push you with its no holds barred, direct challenge to the racism that exists in our pubs, clubs, homes, workplaces and schools. With a supporting cast including Junade Khan (former Hollyoaks actor), I WONDER WHO is a controversial and upfront piece, but carries within a message of hope against the racism that still divides communities across the UK today as it has for decades.

It was also the last film under the Troika+Ltd banner as although I would still work with many of the individuals connected, I decided to focus on freelance and personal work.
