New poster and trailer unveiled for Lionsgate’s ‘Farming’

After premiering at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival, and winning the ‘Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature Film’ at the 2019 Edinburgh International Film Festival, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s stunning directorial debut FARMING is set for release in UK cinemas on 11th October 2019.

Based on his own life story, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s FARMING charts the extraordinary journey of a young fostered Nigerian boy who, struggling to find an identity, falls in with a skinhead gang in 1980’s England.

Check out the trailer and poster below!
 

At six weeks old, Enitan (Zephan Amissah) is left in the care of a white working- class family in the dock-town of Tilbury, in Essex. His new surrogate mother, Ingrid (Kate Beckinsale), makes for a complex, but dubious foster parent. Unsure of his place in the world, and lacking a mother’s love, desperate to belong the teenage Enitan (Damson Idris) spirals into self-destruction, falling in with a local skinhead gang led by Levi (John Dagleish).

When all seems lost, a sympathetic teacher, Miss Dapo (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), offers him one last shot at redemption. Told with brutal honesty, FARMING is an unflinching autobiographical portrait of a young man who must battle the odds and realise that, in a world of hate, his toughest battle will be learning to love himself..

Written and directed By Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, the film stars Damson Idris, Kate Beckinsale, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, John Dagleish, Jaime Winstone, Ann Mitchell, Genevieve Nnaji, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Lee Ross and Zephan Amissah.

Farming will be released in cinemas across the UK on 11 October 2019 by Lionsgate UK.
