For our Women in Focus 2021 series, POP-Corn presents a screening of Sarah Gavron’s, Rocks, a film about the resilience and spirit of girlhood.

Rocks (played by Bukky Bakray) is a popular teenager with big dreams for the future, brilliant friends and an adoring little brother, Emmanuel (played by D’angelou Osei Kissiedu). But her world is turned upside down when her mother suddenly leaves. Determined to stick with her brother and avoid being taken into care against all odds, Rocks leaves her home and hides around East London with the help of her loyal – or maybe not so loyal – friends.

Please note: This event will take place at Poplar Union if government guidelines allow. Subject to cancellation or online screening as an alternative. 

Reviews:

This film is such a rush of vitality. It rocks.” –  Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

This potent work about stolen childhood deserves attention because of the freshness of the cast and because it confirms that Gavron is a director to watch.“  – Stephen Farber, Hollywood Reporter
