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.
“A hypnotic coming-of-age story”
– Film Threat
” 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.”
WINNER – British Independent Film Awards 2019
