Feature Narrative | 2021 | UK | 76min | Directed by Darragh Carey, Bertrand Desrochers
Leah (Lily Newmark) is always filming, shooting on the streets of South London. A wealthy wannabe documentarian filming life on the street. It is here that she meets shy Benji (Ola Orebiyi) and his best friend Archie (Craige Middleburg), and a strange friendship emerges, but as the friendship develops events invariably escalate…
Critically acclaimed coming of age tale A Brixton Tale is the bold feature debut from directors Carey and Desrochers whose film perfectly captures the emotional timbre of the narrative with a genuine feeling for the lives of its protagonists.
Driven by an excellent cast who deliver powerful, authentic performances, the film maintains a restless energy throughout.
“A Brixton Tale still tells an engaging story with authentic characters.” – Film Threat
