Controversy may surround YouTube star Rapman’s film debut, owing to incidents that broke out in Birmingham upon the film’s release, but the director has repeatedly quoted the film’s message of non-violence. Based on the series of the same name, Blue Story sees two best friends find themselves on opposite sides of a postcode war between gangs from rival boroughs of London. Praised for it’s realism and poetic rap-based narration, Rapman’s film is clearly a relevant comment on the futility of modern gang warfare. “A tale perfectly placed to change hearts and minds” London Evening Standard.
