The Last Tree
Submissions for the 27th Annual Hayti Heritage Film Festival open on August 1st! In honor of this occasion we’re screening the award-winning THE LAST TREE through August 7th. Partial proceeds of the $10 rental fee goes towards fundraising for the festival.
THE LAST TREE follows the story of Femi, a British boy of Nigerian heritage who, after a happy childhood in rural Lincolnshire, moves to inner London to live with his mum. Struggling with the unfamiliar culture and values of his new environment, teenage Femi has to figure out which path to adulthood he wants to take, and what it means to be a young black man in London.
Enjoy great cinema as a part of HHFF’s BACKYARD FILM SERIES, and support the festival that centers Black filmmakers in the South. Don’t miss THE LAST TREE.
