Artangel presents Ayo Akingbade's - Jitterbug

Set in Hackney at a time of rampant gentrification, Jitterbug offers a soulful portrait of teenagers coming of age as their community is being torn apart by forces beyond their control...

Jitterbug by Ayo Akingbade is the rising London filmmaker's 13th short film and continues her exploration into the city's rapidly changing landscape. Shot on 16mm film, Akingbade tracks a cinematic rollercoaster ride of youthful hope, adult resignation and resilience as the 18-year old protagonist Afeni, her parents Precious and Julius, and her best friend Goldie deal with devastating news.

Tickets: £13.00 (Concession: £10.00 )
