Never Forget Stephen Lawrence
Directed by Simon Frederick, 'Never Forget Stephen Lawrence’ is a short film seeing people from across culture, media and politics speaking to the camera about the murdered teenager’s life and legacy. With contributions from the public as well as politicians and broadcasters, the short film raises further awareness ahead of the upcoming Stephen Lawrence day, created in close collaboration with the Stephen Lawrence Foundation and Baroness Lawrence herself.
The film, which aims to highlight multicultural voices, ends with a call to viewers to “Help us create a legacy of change”. Stephen Lawrence Day was first celebrated in 2019 and takes place annually on April 22, the date of his death. The 18-year-old was stabbed to death in 1993 in an unprovoked racist attack as he waited at a bus stop in Eltham, south-east London.
Blind Pig was invited to complete the post production and all graphical elements across the film, closely aligning with the director and his team.
