In August 2007, Sophie Lancaster was kicked to death, simply for dressing differently. Two years on, and in tribute to the outgoing, bubbly girl who was denied the chance to live life her way, cult new British make-up brand Illamasqua has commissioned a short film by award-winning French director, Fursy Teyssier.

Produced by creative agency Propaganda, in association with iconic British band, Portishead, Dark Angel‚ is a beautifully haunting rendition of Sophie's story.

The aim of the film is to raise awareness of The Sophie Lancaster Foundation and generate £500,000 to help educate young people about tolerance. Since Sophie's death, we've been working with behavioural experts Huthwaite International, to put together an interactive youth workshop that does just that. But this essential education programme can only be delivered with your help. Please, please show your support watch the film and make a donation.

i grew up in this town. I think its absolutly discusting how any one could do anything like this to anyone.

To me its pretty important that as many people as possible see this video, donate or tell other people about this horrific incident, then maybe we can teach the kids that this is inexcusible.

OK, I watched it - my report... She was killed because she was Goth. Obviously I think this is tragic and insane but people need to realize that when you are pissing on the norms there are less enlightened people who will kill you for nothing more than how you look or act and you should therefore be cautious.

It's sad, unfair, and wrong - but nevertheless there are people who will kill you for pissing on their beliefs.

I am posting this vid because I think it is more explanatory of what happened.

Sophie was a funny girl if shes the one I remember from the Napier, I'm afraid its just the way it is around here that you are abused for being different. It's nothing to do with being a goth or being Asian, being fat or being old, you're abused because you're not like them. The family and followers have done a good job in creating this cause and keeping it in the limelight, she was a beautiful girl and deserved none of this, may this film be an inspiration to others and may she not be forgotten.

It is a reflection of our own intolerance. What if it were a bunch of atheists dumping on a Christian. Would any of you care?

The thing to remember is that the guys that bashed her and her boyfriend were most likely extremely off on alcohol or drugs or both. They bashed them just as they would have bashed any other person walking that way that day.

You're right, I don't get your point though, as I said it could have been anyone, they were alternative so it was a "Moshy Bashing", had the victims been asain it would have been a "racist crime". It should never have happened either way, i doubt the kids who attacked them where on any substance at the time, it's just the way people act round here.

Has political correctness caused a backlash which somehow makes us even less tolerant? Its seems like horrid incidents have escalated since the 'invention' of hate crimes and multi-culturalism.
Or maybe I just notice it more ...

I think the actual issue stems from the welfare system, it creates the type of families and people that attacked her.

Am important message that needs to be spread. What a terrible state we find our "civilisation" in. I only pray that Sophie finds acceptance in some other part of our Universe, somewhere to know peace and acceptance.

You, are a muppet. I've refrained from saying something stronger.

The Welfare System is the very thing that helps stop families getting worse! You can blame it on the government as usual if you want, but it's our responsibility to make things better as individuals - I don't even know whether or not you're a Brit - If you're not, keep your beak out.

Yeah I'm a brit and after living on a council estate for the early years of my life I can see exactly what government handouts do to the lazy and how it creates a void of self worth.... something that has obviously been filled here by violence.
