Freestyle Preview at the Movie Lounge

Friday, February 19, 2010 Craig Grobler 0 Comments

The Movie Lounge, aka the Hip-Hop Film School, is a film club supported by Film London’s Outer Boroughs Pilot Fund – an initiative that creates opportunities to see films beyond mainstream cinema exhibition. The driving force behind the project is Anointed Productions, a grassroots social enterprise based at London’s 3 Mills Studios and an organisation looking to engage the young local community in East London.

To kick start the season, the Movie Lounge will be screening Freestyle in Stratford Library. Set in the world of freestyle basketball, the story follows the blossoming romance between Ondene (newcomer Lucy Konadu) and Leon (stage regular Arinze Kene). These teens may be from different sides of the tracks, but a common interest in freestyling, learning and love brings them together.

With an impressive supporting cast, including Alfie Allen (The Kid, Atonement), Danny John-Jules (Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Red Dwarf) and Colin Salmon (Blood: The Last Vampire, Clubbed), this is a heart-warming tale of how to overcome adversity that should not be missed!

Saturday afternoon is the perfect time to kick back, watch a film and be impressed by the wealth of rising Black British talent in the UK. Head along to the Hopkins Room in Stratford Library (3 The Grove, E15 1EL) between 2 and 5pm. There is no charge to attend, but spaces are limited so book in advance by emailing your details to Or follow FREESTYLR on Twitter here

Freestyle is released in London and key cities by Revolver on 26 February 2010.
