BRASH YOUNG TURKS (UK/2015/90MINS)
Brash Young Turks is the debut feature from award winning filmmaking brothers Naeem & Ash Mahmood, due for release later in the year.
Set against a vibrant backdrop of urban London, BRASH YOUNG TURKS tells the intertwining stories of a new breed of daring young go-getters from the wrong side of the tracks who fight against oppression, greed and adversity whilst aspiring to pursue their dreams. We follow troubled but ambitious teen Mia as she is rescued from her hellish care home by a gang of flamboyant and charismatic young hustlers, whose influence opens her eyes to a world of opportunity. With dreams of making it big they are faced with the choices of following secondary careers dominated by big players or becoming ones themselves.
Stylish, funny, sad and exuberant, BRASH YOUNG TURKS is a totally new and refreshing take on the urban genre.
It stars bright new talents MELISSA LATOUCHE and PAUL CHIEDOZIE, alongside JULIAN GLOVER (Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, For Your Eyes Only, Empire Strikes Back), TOM BOTT (Shank), ANNIE COOPER (Kick Ass, Skins), CHARLES MNENE (Misfits, Dubplate Drama), ANNABELLE LANYON (Legend), RICHARD SHELTON (Emmerdale), ENGLISH FRANK (Offender) and grime legend D DOUBLE E.
The soundtrack includes the cream of the UK urban scene as well as up and coming musicians ranging, in styles from Hip Hop to Soul and Funk with songs by D DOUBLE E, GHETTS, SHYSTIE, SKINNYMAN, INCOGNITO, THE COOL NOTES, MISS BABY SOL and more.
