New film exhibited at The Public Gallery

Toothpix has just completed a film with a group of young people with learning difficulties about problems they face using public transport in Nottingham. The film follows a group as they meet people from Nottingham City Transport and put pressure on them to change things for the better.
The film was funded by the Big Lottery Fund via UK Youth.
Part of an exhibition called 'Hearing Unheard Voices', the film is being projected at The Public Gallery.
Here's a description of the work:
"A thought provoking set of installations by young people from around the UK and Sandwell. Designed to coincide with UK Youth’s national initiative of the same name to train young people in the skills to campaign for their rights, especially young refugees, carers, homeless and those from other sections of society who do not normally have their voices heard."
