TITLE: "I CAN'T BREATH":THE MURDER OF JIMMY MUBENGA
ROLE: DOP/MOTION GRAPHICS/Editor/Sound DESIGN
CLIENT: MIGRANTS ORGANISE
Jimmy Mubenga, a healthy 46 year old Angolan man, died on 12 October 2010 following face-forward restraint in his seat by three G4S security guards on a British Airways flight from Heathrow airport to Angola. His last words being “I can’t breath”.
Migrants Organise commissioned me to film their protest outside of the London, Home Office to raise awareness of Jimmy Mubenga’s murder – and the others who have suffered as a direct result of the hostile immigration policies that have been put forward in recent years; destroying lives and dividing communities.
The video was made up of footage I shot outside the Home Office as well as events staged the same day, taking place up and down the UK. You can read more about what happened to Jimmy Mubenga here.
