Jimmy Brown - 13th Sept 2013

Directing duo Filmawi Efrem and Esrael Alem deliver this lovely, bittersweet very British short to accompany LAC's acoustic strummer Borstal Boy. 

Efrem and Alem document a tale of three youths enjoying life until love complicate's things and tragedy strikes...


"We were inspired by films like This is England, Sweet Sixteen and many other British social realism films. We wanted to show a story which people could relate to. 

"As this was our first record label video we wanted to come in with something new and fresh. We were 19 at the time we shot the video so we were juggling the second year of university and getting the video finished. It was a interesting project as we were given creative control by the label to bring our idea to life".
