Antiqu'e explains gang street language

Girl gangs are taking centre stage in a new British film looking at female street violence.

Sket (an offensive word for prostitute) is the debut feature by writer/director Nirpal Bhogal.

The film follows a 16-year-old girl who is looking for revenge after her sister is murdered.

Set in East London, it looks at rape, sexual and physical abuse, male oppression and drug use.

The film makers aimed to bring experience from the streets to try to make it as authentic as possible.

Antiqu'e (real name Janet) was one of the script advisers on the film and spoke to BBC Asian Network.
