Directed by Horace Ové | 1975

With Herbert Norville, Oscar James, Frank Singuineau

Widely regarded as the first black British feature film, Horace Ové’s vivid, absorbing portrait of the second-generation immigrant experience follows teenage Tony (Herbert Norville), the London-born son of Trinidadian parents, as he struggles to find his place in the world, marginalized by white racism but also alienated by the Black Power militarism espoused by his older brother. With slice-of-life naturalism, Ové offers an incisive look at what it means to be an outsider in your own society.
