Director Statement

The film Fat Ali was based on an experience I had at school. I chose to use girls in the film as I believe that the public don't often see a girl being violent and manipulative to another girl, therefore the impact is stronger and gets the message across clearer. The effects of bullying are the same be it a girl or a boy and in some cases it can be devastating!
The bulk of the film was shot in one day with a few re-takes the following week. .
