The Last Tree

Now Available

Directed by Shola Amoo, THE LAST TREE is the semi-autobiographical story of Femi (as a child played by newcomer Tai Golding), a British boy of Nigerian heritage who, after being fostered in rural Lincolnshire, moves to inner-city London to live with his birth mother. In his teens, Femi (Sam Adewunmi) is struggling with the culture and values of his new environment. Femi must decide which path to adulthood he wants to take, and what it means to be a young black man in London during the early 00s. Going back home to Nigeria with his mum to find his Nigerian roots will help adolescent Femi find grounding and hope for a better future.

2019. 99 minutes. Drama. NR.

“Thoughtfully alternates universal adolescent insecurities with urgently specific minority politics – filtered through a first-person perspective that itself oscillates between furious clarity and vivid confusion.”

Variety

“Newcomer Sam Adewunmi captures Femi’s anger but also his loneliness – a desperate longing to forge his own path, but also to fit in with his family and friends.”

Little White Lies

“As with his debut feature ‘A Moving Image’, a spikily insightful look at gentrification in Brixton, Amoo is always looking to subvert lazy cultural assumptions.”
