‘Teenage Riot’ comes to Kind

Lincoln’s Kind bar will be turned into a cinema for a screening of the Vice/VBS film, “Teenage Riot” Thursday, 3rd February. Filmed during the student protests in London, late last year, the documentary was filmed from within the protest by the people that made it happen – the students.

After the first London protests which saw thousands of students destroy the Tory headquarters at Millbank Tower, the second wave of student action was met by ‘kettles’ and alleged police brutality.

According to VBS News, during the making of the film, two cameramen were beaten by the police and one was mugged inside the protest. The team behind the film say they had to spend a combined 150 hours ‘kettled’.

Despite the student action, MPs still voted for the rise in tuition fees to a maximum of £9000 a year, which has led to yet more protesting around the country.

“Teenage Riot” shows the most intense London riots in a decade through the eyes of the people involved. From bleeding protesters to breakdancing, the film shows the protest from all sides featuring interviews from those involved and some incredible footage of clashes with the police.

Also featuring at Kind will be live screen printing and illustration courtesy of Break Your Socks.
