Award winning film director Bill Maloney and his courageous camera woman Lilly Starr join the grieving family of Ian Tomlinson to pay their respects on the anniversary of his death. Ian Tomlinson was innocently making his way home from work through the G20 protests in London on 1 April 2009. Videos and CCTV footage showed an unprovoked assault on Mr Tomlinson by a police officer striking him from behind with a baton, then proceeding to thrust him, also from behind, pushing him with force to the ground. The police made no attempt to help Mr Tomlinson. He died shortly afterwards on the pavement in the street. Bill Maloney exposes the fear that Ian's family have of speaking out against the Establishment - which is corroborated by Ian Tomlinson's son Paul in this video.
Bill Maloney's aggressive presentation style will not be everyone's cup of tea, but it makes a change from the coverage (or lack of it) of these issues elsewhere. You can find more controversial and thought provoking documentaries by the same director at Pie and Mash films.
