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, tragically died on 12 October 2010 as a result of being restrained face-forward in his seat by three G4S security guards on a British Airways flight from Heathrow airport to Angola. His final words were “I can’t breathe.”
Migrants Organise commissioned me to film their protest outside the London Home Office, with the aim of raising awareness about Jimmy Mubenga’s death, as well as highlighting the plight of others who have suffered due to the implementation of hostile immigration policies in recent years. These policies have had devastating consequences, destroying lives and creating divisions within communities.
The video I created includes footage from the protest outside the Home Office, as well as other events that occurred on the same day throughout the UK. To learn more about the specific details surrounding Jimmy Mubenga’s case, you can refer to the provided link.
