1984? Nah, the 21st Century UK sees unimaginable horrors dished out to grandma and family in director/producer Mark Ashmore's short film, Your State Of Emergency.
It could be a ConDem Government dream, given what was happening on the streets of London yesterday – or some not-too-distant nightmare yet to come. Whatever, it certainly makes you – and the film's granny – wince with horror. We're all terrorists now…
"What we take for granted every day, our basic human rights, is a luxury, it's sad to say that but it's true" says Mark "The film holds a mirror up to our society, asks so many questions of where we could be heading without freedom of speech and human rights. With wiki leaks opening a Pandora's Box on our Government's real world views, I think stories like this film need to be seen so that we continue to question human society, look after ourselves and more importantly help others.
"At a time of public unrest across the world" he adds "it's important to have stories like this, which create art that reminds us of our basic human rights and in a way that is accessible to all."
