Last year, it was reported that Adewale Akinnuoye’s ‘Farming would hit a lot of film festival for its premiere. That and a very harrowing trailer which increased our craving for the movie which is focused on the real-life story of a Nigerian boy in search for his identity within a savage skinhead subculture of the 1980s Britain. The term ‘farming’ refers to the practice of Nigerian parents who paid white families to foster their children in the 1960s, 70s, and 80s while they worked or studied.

To be distributed by FilmOne, one of the leading movie distributors in Nigeria the British drama Farming in collaboration with Accelerate TV and Stint Group, will hit cinemas on the 25th of October 2019.

Moses Babatope, Managing Director, FilmOne, explains the importance of Farming to the region. 

“We have so many stories that need to be told. Many, like Farming, have relevance beyond Africa and affect the history and culture of other countries where there is a Nigerian diaspora. We want to ensure that audiences in west Africa get to watch movies that shift the conversation around our impact on the world.”

Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje also said:

This was a huge boost of encouragement because I was a first-time screenwriter. Here in Britain, we know a lot about the history of slavery, civil rights and the African-American experience. But very little is known about the Black British struggle. This is just one of our stories.

Farming won the Michael Powell Award for Best British Feature Film at the 2019 Edinburgh International Film Festival in June.
