Storyline

Five very different characters are thrown together in one weird, mashed up day. It started out like any other, but 24 hours later everything had changed. South West 9 takes you through the windscreen of the new millenium. The death of idealism, capitalism, religion and hippies. Even the drugs don't work anymore. The 'summer of love' generation have come down and they're ready to riot. Seattle. Stockholm. Paris. Genoa. May Day riots. Written by Anonymous

you would have to be off your head to miss it

From the makers of Human traffic comes its arguably superior accompaniment. SW9 like human traffic has a plot evolving round drugs and club culture, but this time it is accompanied by a more advanced plot, and better characterisation. This film will not leave you grinning from ear to ear and grabbing for your pills, but it is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. SW9 gives a honest and uncompromising view of the pros and cons of inner city life, which has rarely been conveyed on film before. This has got everything you need to keep you entertained for a couple of hours; humour, tragedy, and a clever plot, all to the sound of a banging sound track, from super star Dj Dave Pearce. Who needs big budget Hollywood movies, when the British are producing movies this good!
