Chinese Star Ayi Jihu will be stepping out on Monday the 4th of February in support of C.R.I.M.E. short movie “If only” C.R.I.M.E (Creating Role Models In Media Enterprise) was set up by Mr Fredi ‘KRUGA’ Nwaka and is a community organisation which works with ex offenders, gang members and young teens turning their stories or experiences into short film.
C.R.I.M.E. was set up as a response to the 2011 London riots as a way to not only give back to the community but to help some of the troubled teenagers who would like to seek a career in film/TV,this being done through work shops, mentoring and real life film classes. Having lost over 40 friends and associates to violent crime and gang affiliated incidences, Fredi Nwaka has used his real life experiences to deliver a punchy, fast paced, intelligent look at the gang epidemic which has claimed the lives of so many of our young people.
Ayi Jihu will be working with Fredi ‘KRUGA’ Nwaka on future C.R.I.M.E projects and films and is keen to support the organizations efforts in tackling youth violence. Ayi Jihu and Fredi ‘KRUGA’ Nwaka came together because of the synergies with her Fear Chaser projects and film and his C.R.I.M.E project. The two decided to work together in their efforts to create positive role models and motivate youngsters to do positive things.
Ayi Jihu will join a select group who will watch the first screening of ‘If Only’ at the prestigious 195 Piccadilly, (BAFTA), London W1J 9LN. She says that supporting C.R.I.M.E is in keeping with her ‘Fear Chaser‘ and her new ‘Made in China movements’ as well as her ambassadorial and philanthropic roles all over the world. ‘I am about supporting the positive and re-working the negative’ She says. ‘What Fredi (Kruga) is doing is great and I support him fully.
Following on from its premiere screening the plans is to show IF ONLY around schools, colleges and prisons as part of an educational tour as well as entering it into numerous festivals globally. Despite being screened as a complete short film an educational workshop based package which can be used in both the educational, community and voluntary sector to divert young people away from youth violence has been created. More information regarding this will be given out at the screening.
Global News Ink will be at the screening and will bring you back all the news, photos and video of the event.
