    • Synopsis
    • The Circle is a bold and lyrical portrayal of two brothers, David and Sanchez, living on a Hackney council estate, in East London. The film gives a compelling insight into their family and friendships, the stigmas they face daily, their mental health and how they process their emotions.

      Combining dance with documentary, their story and the challenges they face are embodied through vivid movement sequences. The Circle looks at what it means to be a young black man growing up in inner city London.
