About
Situated around 1990 in the UK the film follows the rave scene that has arrived from Ibiza. In Manchester, best mates Matt and Dylan are in their early 20’s and they quickly rise through the ranks to join the promoting elite. It’s everything they dreamed of and more. But as their success continues to grow, they attract a more dark and sinister world. Matt and Dylan start to drift apart as they are forced to question the dreams they set out to achieve and their once solid friendship.

Part of a series of numerous feature films and documentaries, focusing on different aspects of club and sub-culture around the globe under the Ten Cities Project

About Nadifa Mohamed
Nadifa Mohamed, the Somali-British author, will be speaking about her writing and her Somali homeland. Born in Hargeisa and raised in South London, Nadifa’s first novel, Black Mamba Boy(2010), was inspired by the life of her father who was forced to leave Somalia and set out on an odyssey that took him to the UK. Identified by Granta as one of the best of young British novelists, Nadifa’s novel was described by one reviewer as a book of elegance and beauty. It won the Betty Trask Award and was shortlisted for numerous other prizes. Nadifa’s new novel, The Orchard of Lost Souls, will be published in August 2013. It describes the fall of the Somali state through the lives of three women.

During the same evening, a panel of writers, bloggers, photographers and poets will also discuss their work on the recently concluded 2013 Kenyan general elections.
