For those that liked Anuvahood, Shank, Kidulthood etc..

In September last year, a man was kicked to death in London in a crime so violent that it was likened to something out of Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange. In April this year two teenage girls were convicted for the murder, highlighting a growing increase in female gang violence in Britain. Sket, from the producers of Anuvahood and Shank, promises to tackle this issue head on and in full gritty detail. And in doing so it is likely to draw a lot of controversy.

Sket, which is slang for female prostitute, is based around 16 year old Karla, whose sister is brutally murdered by a drug dealer shortly after moving to London. Alone and grieving she takes solace in a gang, led by brutal man-hater Danielle and with her help, seeks revenge on her sister’s murderer. Produced by Neil Taussing of Revolver Entertainment, this film is destined to tell the story in the same no-holds bared fashion that earned Revolver’s previous releases, Kidulthood and Adulthood, so much praise and attention. The makers of this film have gone one-step further and used research conducted for Taussing’s previous project, Shank, to bolster the realism of the movie.

Using accounts taken from real gang members, this film aims to answer the cries of the inner-city youth, who want cinema to depict the brutal truth of their lives. The bitter reality of the rising levels of female gangs in England is something seldom explored and in doing so this film will provide a voice for those women struggling to be heard in a male-dominated society.

In light of the recent civil unrest, this film is bound to cause dispute, as graphic media is so often condemned for glorifying violent and amoral behavior. However in a film that depicts the reality of life on the streets, it is the truth and the real causes of those truths that are bound to cause all the controversy. Whether this film does a good job of explaining the causes behind increased female violence in Britain will be for the critics to decipher when the film premiers at the 55[SUP]th[/SUP] BFI London Film Festival, which runs from 12 – 27 October. However, with first time writer and director Nirpal Bhogal and rising star Aimee Kelly, who plays Karla, both being nominated for Best British Newcomer at the festival’s awards, we must believe that this film and its young female cast does a convincing job of portraying the lives of these women struggling within society.

As you would expect the film is scored with a fittingly grimy and predominately female soundtrack, with tracks from Lioness, Shystie, Mz Bratt, Yasmin, No lay and the ever-fantastic Emika. Also featuring tunes from Ghetts, DVA, Giggs and Flo Dan, the soundtrack is an appropriately urban accompaniment to the film, which goes on general release from October. 28.
