Leah (Lily Newmark) and Benji (Ola Orebiyi) may walk the same London streets but they come from very different worlds. The debut feature from directors Darragh Carey and Bertrand Desrochers is a star-crossed romance confronting class, race and love in modern Britain. White, middle-class Leah is an aspiring filmmaker who thinks she has found her perfect subject in shy Black lad Benji and his mate. A spark of romance catches fire but is she just using him to further her career? Is he more committed than her and what happens when their love is put to the test?

This screening includes a Q&A with Producer Rupert Baynham , Actors Dexter Padmore and Ola Orebiyi, and Directors Bertrand Desrochers and Darragh Carey.

European Premiere. Thanks to Rupert Baynham
