Meet the creative team behind the film Rocksby Prospect Team / September 15, 2020 / Leave a comment
Film director Sarah Gavron and writer Theresa Ikoko join this week’s Prospect Interview to discuss their new film, Rocks, a celebratory ode to teenage life in today’s London. Rocks follows the story of a teenage girl—nicknamed Rocks—and the fast friendships she develops at school.
The film was made under quite unusual circumstances: casting was done across schools in London, involving nearly 1500 students, before finding the film’s first-time young actors. They then workshopped with the creative team for a year to finalise a script. Sarah and Theresa talk about the creative process of Rocks; writing the lives of today’s teenagers, and what it’s like to release a film during a pandemic.
