Rebecca Johnson’s feature film Honeytrap puts a very intimate, human spin on the lives of young people living in low-income housing in Brixton, South London.
As Johnson tells The Credits, “It really is a tough world they’re growing up in. In contrast to the way gang culture is reported, admittedly, these horrific events do happen, I was privy to see that they’re very, very human. They’re not hardened the criminals the mug shots would suggest, so I felt it was really important for people to see that. There’s this fear based tabloid reporting that’s very unhealthy, and I particularly wanted to tell the girl’s side of the story that hasn’t been seen before.”
