Gone Too Far!
Fune wo Amu
Destiny Ekaragha’s comedy-drama finds tensions on a Peckham estate eclipsed for Yemi by adolescent passion and his brother’s terrible fashion sense.
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.
Read the Time Out review.
Destiny Ekaragha is the third of six children born to Nigerian parents in South London, where she was brought up and still lives. Gone Too Far!, adapted from the Olivier Award-winning stage play of the same name by Bola Agbaje, is her debut feature film. Destiny’s first short film, Tight Jeans, was selected by the 2008 BFI London Film Festival and voted best short by The Observer. Another of her shorts, The Park, was selected for the LFF in 2009. In 2010 Destiny shot a Coming Up film for RDF/Channel 4, The Future Wags of Great Britain. She is currently developing a slate of feature films including Limp, an original project, and one other with the BFI.
