Don’t miss Horace Ové’s hard-hitting and cinematically ambitious feature debut.
Dir Horace Ové
With Herbert Norville, Oscar James, Frank Singuineau
Hailed as Britain’s first black feature film, this BFI-produced debut from Ové is hard-hitting and cinematically ambitious. Scripted by author Sam Selvon (The Lonely Londoners), it follows the plight of a disenchanted British-born black youth in 1970s London who’s torn between his parents’ church-going conformity and his brother’s Black Power militancy.
