Fascinating insight into the work of Jeremy Weller's Grassmarket Project
This well made documentary from 2008 follows Jeremy Weller, Jenle Hallund and the young, untrained actors of the Grassmarket Project as they devise and create a play, The Foolish Young Man.
This shocking drama explores the lives of young people on the fringes of society. Their own life stories are then woven into fiction. The Foolish Young Man is the story of a young businessman, played by David Harewood, who invites them into his home in an effort to save them from the streets.
For once we hear the authentic voices of those forgotten and abandoned by society, and see their transformation as the documentary unfolds. These young people are clearly the real thing, joining the company from Young Offenders Institutes, Pupil Referral Units, and drop-in centres across London. As a result, their chaotic lives crash into the narrative during the course of the filming.
This documentary is well worth watching and takes the audience on an honest and very moving journey.
