After a screening of Attack the Block and ensuing Q&A, in true spirit of the film, we covered up our faces with bandanas, cornered the cast and director in the cinema, pointed the camera at them and demanded an interview. Well, that’s what we would have done if they weren’t so obliging. The Platform meets the Director and Cast for talk of art, allegory, aliens and advice for actors and film lovers everywhere.
Radio presenter, comedian, one time member of the living dead, and now Director of his first film; Joe Cornish discusses his hilarious debut film with us, along with the all new and very talented cast. Meet (from top left, clockwise) Simon Howard [Biggz], Franz Drameh [Dennis], (Joe Cornish), John Boyega [Moses], Alex Esmail [Pest] and Leeon Jones [Jerome].
The Platform also recently brought you a review of Attack the Block, which you can view here.
Cameraperson: Umbreen Khan
