Listen: ‘Honeytrap’ Director Rebecca Johnson Discusses Film on BBC R4’s ‘Woman’s Hour’
Writer-director Rebecca Johnson recently spoke with BBC R4’s Woman’s Hour about her new film, Honeytrap (2014), a revenge-drama film based on the South London murder of teenager Shakilus Townsend in July 2008.
The tragic independent feature tells the story of the “honeytrap murder,” where 16-year-old Townsend was lured to his death by a girl he was in love with, from the girl’s point of view.
The film earned critical acclaim after two sold-out screenings at the London Film Festival in October 2014 and its U.S. debut at SXSW in March 2015.
