“Keep your mouth shut, unless you want to go to prison. Don’t you understand? It’ll incriminate us both.” My father had just finished masturbating in the bed next to me, and was now putting his clothes back on before going out dancing for the night. He would regularly say something like that as I got […]
Exposure recently put together a film about police stop & search. It’s a huge issue in London. With tensions running high after the Mark Duggan verdict, we thought it right to try and bridge the gap between young people and the police. The film is called Fed Up and you can watch it here. Anyone […]

Going into the screening of Fully Focused’s Riot From Wrong I knew almost nothing of the London Riots. I come from Philadelphia in the US. I was aware of what happened in August 2011, but had no idea about the “whys” and “hows” of the situation. My naïveté turned to shock when the film began; […]
“C’mon everybody’s doing it. Take a pull on it you pussy.” So, I thought, “Why not?” I was 15, and I had many friends. I didn’t want to turn into a loner by alienating myself. I gave into peer pressure because I thought that if I didn’t say “yes” to my so-called friends then they […]
