In August 2007, Sophie Lancaster was kicked to death, simply for dressing differently. In tribute to the outgoing, bubbly girl who was denied the chance to live life her way, cult new British make-up brand Illamasqua has commissioned a short film by award-winning French director, Fursy Teyssier.
Produced by creative agency Propaganda, in association with iconic British band, Portishead, Dark Angel‚ is a beautifully haunting rendition of Sophie’s story.
The aim of the film is to raise awareness of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and generate £500,000 to help educate young people about tolerance. Since Sophie’s death, we’ve been working with behavioural experts Huthwaite International, to put together an interactive youth workshop that does just that. But this essential education programme can only be delivered with your help. Please, please show your support watch the film and make a donation.
