The Hard Stop
by George Amponsah
In August 2011, 29-year-old Mark Duggan was shot and killed whilst being arrested by armed police in Tottenham, London. This incident ignited a riot that escalated into a week of the worst civil unrest in recent British history. This film explores the life and death of Mark Duggan, and features his childhood friends, Marcus and Kurtis, as they struggle to come to terms with the death of their friend - whilst also waiting to see if the inquest into his shooting will provide them with a satisfactory version of the truth.
