THE LAST TREE

THE LAST TREE 
Thursday 31 October 2019 at 2.30pm
Black History Month screening

Nicholas Pinnock, Denise Black, Gbemisola Ikumelo

Femi is a young boy of Nigerian descent growing up with his foster mother in idyllic rural Lincolnshire. Things change abruptly when his birth mother Yinka comes to reclaim him, moving them into a claustrophobic flat in South London. The teenage Femi becomes estranged from his mother, and falls under the influence of the local ‘bad boy’ Mace, while trying to keep his own identity. Amoo uses imaginative camerawork and fine performances from his cast to show the cultural confusion of a young man with three different homes, none of which are really his own.

2019 | Dir Shola Amoo | 98min | UK

“Shola Amoo’s lyrical coming-of-age drama wrestles with questions of belonging and identity in an indubitably timely fashion” – Kate Stables, Sight & Sound Film of the week
