Watch the Exclusive Trailer For ‘War of the Minds’, A Short Film Starring Ghetts

Friday 14 August 2015
Words Ailis Mara

Grime is one of the true remaining refuges of boundary-pushing musicians and visionaries. Through honest translations of culture and a level of DIY dedication which once rocketed punk and hip hop from the underground, this uniquely British genre has now reached an international level of appreciation and celebration.

Justin Clarke, aka Ghetts, is one of the longest standing and most acclaimed grime figures and has stayed true to the philosophy of the scene with this short film ‘War of the Minds’.

Turning the traditional music documentary format on its head, the film instead takes an avant-garde approach, looking at the inner creative tensions that Ghetts faces as an artist – represented by three characters, Ghetts, Ghetto and Justin.

Check out a sneak preview of the project in the player above.

‘War of the Minds’ is premiering at Dalston Roof Gardens on August 24th, complete with a Q&A with Ghetts and free drinks kindly supplied by Jack Daniels. Tickets only cost £10, so click here to get your hands on one. #WOTM
