The screening will be followed by a live in person Q&A with directors Darragh Carey and Bertrand Desrochers, writer Rupert Baynham and lead actor Ola Orebiyi.
Leah (Lily Newmark) is a young, affluent YouTuber with filmmaking aspirations, seeking authenticity on the streets of Brixton with her camera. It’s there that she meets Benji (Ola Orebiyi): handsome, shy, and a resident of the infamous Barrier Block housing project. Despite the different worlds they inhabit, after capturing him through her lens a connection deepens between them – but their relationship with each other, and with the growing gaze of the camera, leads the pair of them down a dangerous path.
An ambitious first feature from its directing duo and a showcase for the wealth of young talent in its cast, A Brixton Tale is a love story that highlights the differences and the similarities of lives lived in the city.
