Synopsis

Based on his own incredible autobiographical story, writer-director Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s FARMING follows a young Nigerian boy as he is drawn into the warped world of a racist skinhead gang in 1980s England.


Enitan (Amissah/Idris) is a young boy “farmed out” by his parents to a white British family in the hope of giving him a better future. Caught between two worlds and belonging to neither, Enitan’s need for love and acceptance is exploited by the adults in his life, transforming a sweet boy into a teenage menace.


Driven by themes of identity, power, love and betrayal, FARMING is rich with compelling characters: complex and dubious foster mother Ingrid (Beckinsale), Levi (Dagleish) the charismatic gang leader whom Enitan must overcome, and at its heart our flawed hero, Enitan, a lost soul desperately searching for a mother’s love as he struggles to find himself in a brutal world. When all seems lost and Enitan spirals into self-destruction, a benevolent teacher (Mbatha-Raw) offers him one last chance at redemption.


The film will be followed by a Q&A with director Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje
