Screen can reveal the first look at Snowfall star Damson Idris in writer and director Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s (Lost) autobiographical feature Farming.
Kate Beckinsale, Gugu Mbatha Raw and Cosmo Jarvis co-star in the coming-of-age story about a young British-Nigerian boy, fostered by a white working-class family in 1980s UK, who goes on to become the leader of a feared skinhead gang.
When all seems lost and he spirals into self-destruction, a benevolent teacher (played by Mbatha-Raw) offers him one last chance at redemption.
The film is produced by Michael London, Janice Williams, François Ivernel and Andrew Levitas. It is executive produced by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje and co-produced by Miranda Ballesteros. Financiers for the film are Frédéric Fiore of Logical Pictures and Andrew Levitas of Rogue Black.
