VICE Is Ten: 2002 - 2012

Teenage Riot

Our film about that time Britain's youth spent a couple of months throwing stuff at the police.

A little while ago the Conservative party proposed making British education ridiculously expensive while also cutting funding, grants and various forms of financial aid that were helping people get educated. Because it's obviously important to screw an entire generation of kids out of higher education. The Liberal Democrats pledged to fight those proposals, then ended up rolling over, having their bellies scratched and somehow forgetting that they'd ever made such plans. All of that pissed a lot of people off, which led to riots at the Tory HQ and months of battles between the police and Britain's youth. We made a film about it. This is it.
