The Hard Stop is an intimate documentary providing an alternative perspective on one of tho most important events in recent British history. Mark Duggan was shot and killed in a Hard Stop police procedure in 2011. The fallout sparked the most violent riots the UK has seen. For 28 months, director George Amponsah filmed around Broadwater Farm in Tottenham, where Duggan grew up. With insights from his family and friends Marcus and Kurtis, this is a profoundly humane, thought-provoking and insightful documentary.
