Mario and Nini

First shown in Sky1 in August 2009, this film charts the life of two boys – Mario and Nini - from primary school, to secondary school and on the streets of London over a period of six years. Director Chloe Ruthven worked with them as their Learning Mentor over this period, gave the boys a camera to make their own film and involved them intimately in the process of making this film. The film raises many questions about the provision for children who are vulnerable to crime and street violence in London, and points to possible solutions. The film is now available for screenings in schools and to community and other groups. If you would like Chloe to bring the film to you, please contact her directly.
