Loughton teenager to see her film screened to audience of hundreds

East London and West Essex Guardian Series: Charly Mae Nelson and her business partner Jay Cosme Charly Mae Nelson and her business partner Jay Cosme

A teenager will see a film on domestic violence she directed screened to an audience of 300.

Charly Mae Nelson, 18, of Valley Hill, Loughton, first made the film, The Boyfriend, for a project while studying at Epping Forest College and decided to make it into a feature film after she graduated.

The former Roding Valley High School pupil said: “It’s about a young woman, Lily, in a relationship with a boy called James and he’s quite violent towards her.

“It’s to create awareness of domestic violence. I think it’s important because it’s not really a subject that’s talked about.”

She and her business partner Jay Cosme, who wrote the film, uploaded a trailer to You Tube, where it was seen by distributor, who showed it to the buying manager at Vue Cinemas.

Its one-off screening at the Vue in Westfield Stratford City is due to take place on February 25.
