February 28, 2019 by socialaction2014

Based on a true story from Amani Simpson, ‘AMANI’ is the latest short from Joivan Wade (The First Purge, Shiro’s Story, Deep It & Mandem On The Wall) – The film depicts the inner reflections of a young man battling with his faith after being stabbed seven times.

The vision is that this will be much more than a film, but rather a movement to strengthen the discussion and debate towards the end of the knife crime epidemic plaguing the lives of our young people and adults across the country. If you enjoy the film and agree with its messages don’t forget to please share the film with a friend, family member, colleague or even a complete stranger!
