SAVE ME is a social impact short film following two teenagers, connected through trauma, who embark on a cab journey in search of freedom.
Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker and youth coach Amani Simpson, producer of the acclaimed ‘AMANI’ short film (now with nearly 4 million Youtube views) and starring A Smxlls (Popular YouTuber and TikToker) and rapper Lightz (Nines’ Crop Circle film). This is also Amani’s writer/director debut and was co-created with young people from Enfield, some of whom also feature in the film.
The film addresses the need for contextualised safeguarding (intervention from members of the community) and covers the themes of grooming, exploitation, and consequences. It has been commissioned by Enfield Council and supported by the VRU’s Operation Engage (Enfield & Haringey). It will be used nationally as a training tool in schools, professional and community settings to help educate and empower viewers.
