UK-based sales outfit Parkland Pictures has acquired worldwide sales rights (excluding UK) to A Brixton Tale, which had its world premiere at this year’s Glasgow Film Festival.
It is the first feature film from commercials director Darragh Carey and music video director Bertrand Desrochers.
The cast features Lily Newmark (Misbehaviour), Ola Orebiyi (Limbo) and Craige Middleburg (The Batman) alongside former Screen Stars of Tomorrow Jaime Winstone and Barney Harris.
Dennis Gyamfi and Beau Rambaut are producers with Rupert Baynham, who also wrote the screenplay with Chi Mai. The project was written, performed and shot in collaboration with the local community.
The plot follows estate youth Benji and art student and YouTuber Leah. They fall in love, but when they tempt each other into increasingly reckless behaviour for the sake of a documentary, their lives spiral out of control.
A Brixton Tale was also selected for the 2021 Slamdance Film Festival.
