Luke Bather - 8th Nov 2016

Yoni Lappin brings us a stylish snapshot portrait of the lives of London's young people just trying to kill time. Parties, petty theft, bikes, and blocks of flats... familiar to many as they struggle through growing up, finding out who they are and attempt to have a good time in the process.

Lappin here boils down youthful mischief to a pure, joyous essence, merging documentary and sweet drama, and making familiar London terrain seem like a sparse and beautiful domain occupied solely by the characters in the video.
