A film chronicling East London grime artist Ghetts is set to premiere later this week at Brighton’s Great Escape Festival.
The documentary, War of the Minds, was created by Sudden Black Productions in collaboration with youth culture media company Disrupt Ltd.
Ghetts won the Jack Daniel’s Hardest Working Artist award at the Association of Independent Music (AIM) Awards last September, and this new film is part of Jack Daniel’s ongoing Jack Rocks initiative, which celebrates and supports cross-genre, handcrafted music.
“Ghetts came to our attention last September when he won our Hardest Working Band category at the AIM Awards,” said Jack Daniel’s senior brand manager Michael Boaler. “We quickly booked him for a gig at our Jack Rocks The Macbeth venue and that’s where conversations about the War of the Minds concept began.
“It’s a great film and really does push the usual conventions of the standard music documentary.”
War of the Minds can be seen at The Great Escape’s Bosco Theatre at 1pm on 16 May, ahead of Ghett’s supporting gig at the Brighton Dome later that evening.
