Synopsis

Leke, a mixed heritage man living in London, is a successful photographer. His privileged lifestyle allows him to navigate his Black British identity largely on his own hedonistic terms. But when a message from Senegal calls him ‘home’, Leke must confront the psychological intricacies of his heritage and forge a new sense of self.
Moving from brooding London cityscapes to an almost trancelike stillness as Leke travels through to his Senegalese village in Popenguine, director Joseph a. Adesunloye skilfully evokes the internal dichotomy Leke faces. (LFF brochure)
