Killed By My Debt (2018)
A hard-hitting docudrama about 19-year-old Jerome Rogers, who finds himself under crushing debt and eventually takes his own life as a consequence. LFS Graduates who also worked on the crew include:

“If you haven’t seen it yet, you should. You won’t find it easy, at times it’s pretty much impossible; it gnaws at your stomach and your conscience. But it’s important because of what it says about what’s going on out there. Killed By My Debt should be played, on a loop, in the offices of Camden council and every other local authority that outsources its debt collection to bailiffs.” Sam Wollaston, The Guardian
