In early 2015 Concrete Castle Films were awarded London Calling financing through Film London and Eastern Edge Films.


Co-produced by Mor Productions, Little Soldier, went into production in July 2015 and was recently re-cut and finished in March 2016.


The film was written and directed by Stella Corradi, shot on 16mm by renowned cinematographer Robbie Ryan BSC and produced by Carol-Mei Barker, Neta Mor and Anna Jancsò.


Little Soldier is the story of 10 year old Anya (Amaris Miller). Anya's mother Amanda (Zawe Ashton) suffers from addiction, forcing Anya into the role of carer and provider. She works for Derek (Morgan Watkins) a drug dealer who wants to keep Anya and Amanda under his control. However, Anya takes matters into her own hands, with darkly comic consequences. Told entirely from Anya’s perspective, the harsh realities of her life are punctuated with moments of colour and imagination, to suggest a sense of hope and the magic of a child’s resilience to life’s difficulties.
