‘Really?’ keeps audiences engaged and is guaranteed to drive rich discussion on a number of key subjects. The film is accompanied by a resource pack put together by wellbeing and education specialists, designed to fully support the presentation of the film. The powerful style of the resource, challenging issues covered, including young people’s mental health, means it is best suited for years 10 and 11.
Film drama removes us from our ‘everyday’ and transports us to a place guided by the actors we are watching. While confronting and challenging us to imagine a new world, our minds are open to new thoughts and information. Few other platforms provide such a rich environment for conscious and unconscious learning. In our experience, this form of engagement is one of our most powerful tools in delivering important life messages.
The film was produced by a local housing association in Maidstone and stars young people from the local area. While the location and demographics reflect that area, the themes covered are likely to resonate in other parts of the country: the resource is designed to develop key skills and attributes in young people including understanding risk, developing resilience, tolerance and respect and the ability to make healthy, independent choices.
