It’s 2010. London. Thousands of students kettled outside Parliament hear the results— despite their adamant protesting, student tuition fees have just been increased by over 60%.
Kettling of the Voices explores the events and aftermath of this movement that defined a generation — from the storming of the Conservative Party HQ to the ‘Battle of Parliament Square’. It features never-before-seen footage of police brutality and follows the court cases of several prominent activists – including Alfie Meadows – over a long-winded and trialing four-year period. In the wake of the 2015 general election, Kettling of the Voices is a documentary that mustn’t be missed.
Chester Yang is a London-based filmmaker and graduate of the National Film and Television School with over 14 years of filmmaking experience. Born in a small village in Sierra Leone, Chester grew up under several gangster dictatorship regimes and surrounded by the bloody turmoil of civil war. In 1996 he fled to England in search of democracy, and this passion lead him to dedicate his life to telling the untold stories, to providing a unique voice for those underprivileged or segregated within society, and to entertain and inspire. With a rich back catalogue of short films and feature dramas and documentaries, some of which have been broadcast, and many shown at film festivals across the world, he is currently in development on feature films such as the war drama The Mule with 2pilots Films in Germany, and the documentary Kettling of the Voices with CY Film Productions in London. Previously, Chester has made four documentaries, a one-hour drama film, and has produced and directed several short films. He is also in development on two feature films: The Last Checkpoint, with 2pilots Film Productions in Germany, and Voice of the Bubus with CY Film Productions in London.
