In the wake of the killing of George Floyd, a band of artists created pieces using their mobile phones to share their feelings concerning the inner sorrow of police brutality, injustice and systemic racism.
Multiple students & alumni from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School have created ‘I Can’t Breathe’, which premiered this week.
The short film is written & directed by BOVTS student Lionelle Nsarhaza and features BOVTS alumni Kel Matsena, Denzel Baidoo, Issam Al Ghussain, Ben Prusiner.
Speaking to the School, Lionelle said, ‘The team and I hope that this piece allows people to reflect on their livelihood, and through its poetic prose, raise some questions. It is not to cause a divide but form unity through reflection.’

‘I Can’t Breathe’ is available to watch now.
