The film, using young local people, graphically shows the deadly consequences of carrying weapons, and warns young people against associating themselves with gun crime.
Councillor Mark Bennett, cabinet member for safer communities at Lambeth Council, said, "Using mobile phones is a great way to communicate with young people, and it also means that the message of the film can be passed on by young people to other young people, who we might not otherwise be reached."
