A spirited teenage girl suddenly finds herself struggling to take care of herself and her younger brother in this surprising portrait of resilience.

A fresh, funny coming-of-age story rooted in realistic characters and anchored with a meaningful message, Rocks is another film we are bringing back following screening in 2020.  Compassionate, charming and earnest, this British film picked up a BAFTA for Best Casting and breakout star Bukky Bakray received the EE Rising Star Award 2021.

The film follows teenager Rocks (Bukky Bakray) who fears that she and her little brother Emmanuel (D’angelou Osei Kissiedu) will be forced apart if anyone finds out they are living alone. With the help of her friends, she evades the authorities and navigates the most defining days of her life. A film about the joy, resilience and spirit of girlhood.

ART31

ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
