“Jela” A Short Film by Will Robson-Scott

Will Robson-Scott is one of the illest documentarians around. Of course we’re a little biased because the photographer and filmmaker is a contributor who helped to make issue 52 as awesome as it is, but even if he wasn’t, his amazing Crack & Shine book and video series are proof enough. While C & S delves into the world of graffiti around the  globe, Robson-Scott’s new short film “Jela” gives us a very personal glimpse into the life of a former hooligan, drug dealer/addict and skin head from London’s East End.

From WRS:

“This film follows Jela, brought up in the heart of the East End of London in a Turkish and English family. He talks about his memories of growing up in the ’80s and ’90s and his time on the streets and on football terraces. Jela grew up fast, being immersed in football violence, skinhead culture, and hard drug use before his life spiraled out of control, now sober he looks to the future.

The East End he grew up in has changed on the surface but many of the faces he grew up with remain the same. His struggles have made him what he is today and Jela is East London through and through”
