Rocks, by Theresa Ikoko and Claire Wilson

Film Club - Week 02

Talking points

At the end of the film, take time to write down your impressions. What moved you? What frustrated you?

  1. Did you recognise certain streets and places in the film? How connected to your community do you feel? For those who live in/know East London, was this a side of the city that you were aware of?
  2. Why do you think Shola (Rocks) is so wary of authority figures? Consider how you would have advised her as a friend and how this might be influenced by your own upbringing and cultural assumptions.
  3. Do you think Agnes did the right thing?
  4. If you’re not already aware of Krish Kandiah’s ministry ‘Home for Good’ take some time to research it and consider whether you would be interested in adoption.
  5. Consider how we, as individuals and as a community, might be able to support teenage girls growing up in London.
  6. The Bible says: ‘One who has unreliable friends soon comes to ruin, but there is a friend who sticks closer than a brother.’ Proverbs 18:24. If you have friends like that, take time to thank God for their friendship and support, and perhaps send them a message to show your appreciation. If you feel like you are lacking friends ‘who stick closer than a brother’ think about how you can go about investing in the people in your life to cultivate those friendships.

Podcast

We’re putting together a podcast where we discuss these questions and the film in more detail. If you’d like to share your thoughts with the rest of Film Club, please send them to [email protected]
