Rocks, by Theresa Ikoko and Claire Wilson
Film Club - Week 02
At the end of the film, take time to write down your impressions. What moved you? What frustrated you?
- 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?
- 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.
- Do you think Agnes did the right thing?
- 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.
- Consider how we, as individuals and as a community, might be able to support teenage girls growing up in London.
- 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.
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]
