Our incredible Theo Barklem-Biggs stars in ‘Farming’ as Scum, written and directed by Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje.
The story is “Based on the writer/director’s childhood, ‘Farming’ tells the story of a young Nigerian boy, farmed out by his parents to a white British family in the hope of a better future. Instead, he becomes the feared leader of a white skinhead gang.”
“Driven by themes of identity, power, love and betrayal, ‘Farming’ is rich with compelling characters: complex and dubious foster mother Ingrid (Beckinsale), Levi (Dagleish) the charismatic gang leader whom Enitan must overcome, and at its heart our flawed hero, Enitan, a lost soul desperately searching for a mother’s love as he struggles to find himself in a brutal world. When all seems lost and Enitan spirals into self-destruction, a benevolent teacher (Mbatha-Raw) offers him one last chance at redemption.”
The film originally premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2018 and is set to premiere in the UK on the 11th October 2019.
