Based on his own life story, FARMING charts the extraordinary journey of a young fostered Nigerian boy who, struggling to find an identity, falls in with a skinhead gang in 1980’s England. Starring Damson Idris (Black Mirror), Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), John Dagleish (Judy), Jaime Winstone (Love, Rosie), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle) and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje (Suicide Squad) himself, FARMING is available to own on Digital Download and DVD this February.
At six weeks old, Enitan (Zephan Amissah) is left in the care of a white working-class family in the dock-town of Tilbury, in Essex. His new surrogate mother, Ingrid (Beckinsale), makes for a complex, but dubious foster parent. Unsure of his place in the world, and lacking a mother’s love, desperate to belong the teenage Enitan (Idris) spirals into self-destruction, falling in with a local skinhead gang led by Levi (Dagleish). When all seems lost, a sympathetic teacher, Miss Dapo (Mbatha-Raw), offers him one last shot at redemption.
Told with brutal honesty, FARMING is an unflinching autobiographical portrait of a young man who must battle the odds and realise that, in a world of hate, his toughest battle will be learning to love himself.
FARMING is available on Digital Download 3rd February and DVD 10th February 2020.
