|A NEW musical film made by young Teessiders and focusing on mental health issues has its local premiere next month.
Bright Lights saw the group pool their creative talents to raise awareness of self-harm and suicide, particularly among the area’s black and minority ethnic (BME) communities.
The film’s storyline revolves around four young people and their struggles with self-esteem, confidence, socialising and family issues.
None of the cast members had any prior experience of acting, but their natural talents came to the fore during filming, and some of the team have already started work on their next project.
The completed film is now ready to be showcased and the team hopes it will help to inspire others who can relate to the various issues addressed.
The film will premiere at Tuned In in Majuba Road, Redcar, TS10 5BJ on Friday, December 6 from 4pm to 8pm and tickets are now available.
