Black Sheep follows two brothers from the North of England and their adolescent curiosity for the EDL - a right-wing street protest movement against radical Islam in Britain.
Black Sheep, the thin line between homeland and xenophobia in England
Two teenagers from a town in the North West of England attend for the first time a demonstration of the English Defense League (EDL), a right-wing organization famous for preaching Islamophobia.
The short film begins with a parent-child home conversation where the event is anticipated as a catalyst to express the need to defend a notion of country that they believe is threatened by the growing number of Muslim inmigrants.
The feeling of belonging to a group with common ideals, something so intrinsically part of youth, permeates this journey of two boys through the thin line that marks the distance between the concepts of homeland and xenophobia.
