Genevieve Nnaji.

Africa’s number one entertainer and Nollywoods best, Genevieve Nnaji is amongst actors featuring in the movie, “FARMING”, directed by another actor, Akinnuoye-Agbaje.

“FARMING” according to Lionsgate, is the directorial debut of the British-Nigerian actor Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, which is a fascinating true story about a young black boy’s search for love and belonging within a savage skinhead subculture and based on his own unbelievable story as a troubled youth in London, the title “Farming” refers to the practice of giving children over to informal fostering, which many Nigerian parents did in 1960s and 1970s Britain.

Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s parents, at the time students in 1967 London, gave him to a white working-class couple in Tilbury, which was then a fiercely insular, majority white dockside community, where he was in constant danger of physical attack from local kids who, encouraged by their parents, nurtured a violent fear of black people.

 Genevieve Nnaji in her element, played some role of the mother of the fostered boy.

FARMING had Kate Beckinsale, John Dagleish, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Jaime Winstone, Genevieve Nnaji, Zephan Amissah and first premiered in the Discovery section of the Toronto International Film Festival in 2018, where it was picked up by Lionsgate.
