Sophie Lancaster - A Senseless Death
12-01-2009 8:28 AM

This story is a couple of years old, but I just saw it and wanted to post it here.

There are 2 videos, the first an aniomated cartoon that is violent and seems rather senseless, until 2 minutes in to the video, when it is explained. The second video provides news casts, the paramedics call and pictures.

In August 2007, Sophie Lancaster was kicked to death, simply for dressing differently. Two years on, and in tribute to the outgoing, bubbly girl who was denied the chance to live life her way, cult new British make-up brand Illamasqua has commissioned a short film by award-winning French director, Fursy Teyssier.

Produced by creative agency Propaganda, in association with iconic British band, Portishead, Dark Angel"š is a beautifully haunting rendition of Sophie's story.

The aim of the film is to raise awareness of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and generate £500,000 to help educate young people about tolerance. Since Sophie's death, we've been working with behavioural experts Huthwaite International, to put together an interactive youth workshop that does just that. But this essential education programme can only be delivered with your help. Please, please show your support watch
the film and make a donation.

The older I get the less threatening a life sentence sounds

Sympathy for the Devil only results in victimized angels.
