A new short film has been produced to highlight the harmful effects of smoking shisha.
It was produced by Blackburn with Darwen Council working in partnership with local design agency TPW.
In designing the film, young people from Blackburn Youthzone and Pleckgate High School were spoken to to understand their awareness of and attitudes towards shisha usage.
These conversations, as well as involvement from local charity One Voice, helped to inform the film’s script and typical circumstances and locations where shisha is smoked – from shisha cafés to at home and in the park – whilst highlighting the truth about its dangers.
Young Blackburn film maker Aeman Ali Afzal produced the film in conjunction with TPW.
