Commissioned by the British Library as a follow up to the ‘Writing Britain’ film, Leeds based media initiative Studio 12 and film production company Left Eye Blind Productions were asked to identify and inspire young writers from disadvantaged backgrounds to write about the problems of their past, the potential of their present and the possibility of the future. After months of workshops with over 25 young writers, the majority of which were first time writers, three individuals were chosen to have their words put to film.
