Director George Amponsah Attending

Ash needs money. He’s trying to support his younger sister and his mother should go to rehab. His back against the wall, he joins Dubz’s gang, zooming around the city engaging in petty crime… until he’s pushed into a jewelry heist that sets him and the gang on the wrong side of Armenian gangsters.

Director George Amponsah, BAFTA award-winning director of numerous documentaries including The Hard Stop at 2016 MSPIFF, turns to feature filmmaking with a stunning crime film that’s already been compared to Martin Scorsese and Ken Loach films. At once a violent and engaging thriller, Gassed Up is also social realism at its best.

Winner of the Audience Award for Best Feature at the BFI London Film Festival.
