ABOUT THE FILM
THE LAST TREE – Distinctive in terms of content, perspective, and insight. Vividly depicting the turmoil of adolescence with remarkable grace. THE LAST TREE follows the story of Femi, a British boy of Nigerian heritage who, after a happy childhood in rural Lincolnshire, moves to inner London to live with his mum. Struggling with the unfamiliar culture and values of his new environment, teenage Femi has to figure out which path to adulthood he wants to take, and what it means to be a young black man in London.
“Shola Amoo’s film is a visually compelling coming-of-age narrative that explores the definition of family.” (The New York Times)
“The story of a British-Nigerian boy growing up in rural Lincolnshire and inner-city London is told with compassion in Shola Amoo’s profoundly moving drama.” (The Guardian)
