A film featuring our client's story of living under 24/7 GPS surveillance as part of a controversial Home Office scheme has won an award at this year's Earl’s Court International Film Festival. 

As part of the scheme, people who are not British citizens - including people who have lived in the UK since childhood - can be forced to wear GPS tracking devices for an indefinite period so that the Home Office can track their location 24/7.

The film, ‘He Looked at my tag and wrote me off’, is a true story of the physical and psychological effect of the scheme - which was recently extended until December, and campaigners are fighting to end. 

It was screened on the 13th, 15th and 17th of November when it won the award for Story-telling at the festival, which is now in its ninth year of attracting established and emerging film and acting talent from around the world.
