Using funding from the Safer Hastings and Safer Rother Community Safety Partnerships, last year, young people from Hastings, Sidley and Rye were invited to work with a local film company, Prometheus Film Productions, to create live performances and films about domestic violence and healthy relationships.
These sessions aimed to get young people talking about abuse and unhealthy relationships and were led by Paul Saunders, a professional actor and filmmaker, and assisted by Jamie De’Ath, editor and cameraman, and Jayne Reid, production co-ordinator and ex-police officer.
Below is a video by Paul Saunders from Prometheus Film Productions, that gives an overview of the project.
