Why Film?

Inspired by the likes of Mike Leigh, Ken Loach, Andrea Arnold etc but mainly by real peoples’ experiences, Film is integral to what we do. It's accessible (everyone loves a good story), it's a great way to explore difficult issues, learn skills and explain our worlds to each other.

 

We use a fantastic technical team, who work alongside participants to create short films, features, documentaries on a range of issues. See below to explore the three feature films produced by Kandu Arts so far, and a number of shorts created during projects with young people exploring their lives. Not only are the films original, so is the music - all created by the participants, recorded and produced at Kandu.

 

We have created three feature films to date.

Everything (2004)

"A lean, economical affair, Everything does wonders with its limited resources. Top drawer acting grants it a rare strength and intimacy." BAFTA nominated 2005
