A lovely short directed by Margate-based director Tom Dream and singer-songwriter Arlo Parks. “Knotted Gold” is part of Gucci’s Absolute Beginners series — a collaboration with Dazed that sees nine creative artists direct a short film for the first time.

“Having this opportunity to give a platform to so many brilliant people and locations in Margate was a dream, and also the positive impact of working with People Dem Collective and the young people they support through mentor programs added so much to both the creative process and the outcome, as is evident in this film.”
