Based on writer director Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s own experience, Farming is the uniquely personal film about one boy’s struggle with identity and internalised racism.
Enitan, a young Nigerian boy, `farmed out' by his parents to a white British family in the hope of a better future, finds himself surrounded by structural racism that he doesn’t fully understand. Growing up alongside the rise of the National Front, Enitan turns against himself in the search for acceptance and belonging, ultimately fighting to become the fearful leader of a white skinhead gang.
