Romiet and Juleo is a gender-reversed version of the classic love story. Shot in east London, it shows how Romiet, a black teenager from the Montague gang, meets Juleo, the white son of the Montague’s family’s arch enemies: the Capulets. Part animation, part live action, this film considers the story in a modern day setting, and explores how these conflicts are still relevant today.
