Alex Kacheppa acted in a film I made a year before the police raided his house and I knew nothing about the situation his family were in.
When the news spread of his attempted deportation myself and a small group of his friends began making a film about him. As the story became increasingly extraordinary Alex revealed himself to be a remarkable young man.
When adults are critical of young people I recall Alex and his friends and how the adult world treated their belief that people in power would listen to them.
The film won the BBC Big Screen Award for best documentary judged by Mark Kermode.
