For the relatives of those who died, for those who knew them, for those who lived in Grenfell’s shadow – life has changed for ever. Like the young people who’d been working on a documentary – with film-maker Nendie Pinto-Duschinsky- about the closure of a youth club in North Kensington when the fire broke out. They turned their attention to the people caught up in the tragedy – and to those who volunteered in the days afterwards.

Filmmaker Adrienne McKenzie and Grenfell volunteers Swarzy Macaly and Reece Yerboah discuss the continuing impacts of the Grenfell fire.
