Ava DuVernay’s distribution collective presents Honeytrap, the first UK urban drama seen from a girl’s point of view. Girlhood and gang culture collide in Honeytrap as 15-year old Layla (Jessica Sula) contends with bullying at a new school by transforming herself inside and out. The teen’s compulsive journey for love and acceptance soon becomes fatal in this cautionary tale based on headline news adapted by writer/director Rebecca Johnson. Honeytrap held its world premiere screening at the 2014 BFI London Film Festival and is an official selection of SXSW and Urbanworld Film Festival.
