When teenage Yemi (Kirby) meets his long-lost Nigerian brother Iku (Ukeje), he quickly finds his estranged sibling’s African heritage and unimpressive fashion sense – socks and sandals! – a blight on his own street cred, particularly when trying to impress local troublemaking temptress Armani (Warren-Markland). As simmering adolescent passions and West Indian-African tensions erupt over the course of one day on their estate, both Yemi and Iku must decide where their loyalties lie. Adapted from Bola Agbaje’s Olivier award-winning play, the film finds the humour in its Peckham ‘endz’ while still addressing serious racial tensions. Director Destiny Ekaragha’s short film Tight Jeans made a big impact at LFF 2008: it’s gratifying to see her talented cast and crew deliver on that early promise here.
