When I See You, I See Me
By Rohan Blair-Mangat
Produced in conjunction with Adidas Orginals and Tate Britain, 'When I See You, I See Me' is a short film that charts Wretch 32's life from a North London estate to rap superstar. The film examines the trials of modern day celebrity, documenting the drive and persistence it takes to reach the top, echoing Wretch's own story.

When I’m looking for a character I’m looking for someone I can befriend. I’m looking for someone who will step into the process of this filmmaking and change as a person by embracing it so it becomes part of the story.
