Although Leah (Lily Newmark) and Benji (Ola Orebiyi) walk the same South London streets, they come from completely different worlds.
From debut directors Darragh Carey and Bertrand Desrochers, A Brixton Tale is a powerful, thrilling drama and star-crossed romance that confronts class, race and love in modern Britain.
White, wealthy vlogger Leah is an aspiring filmmaker who thinks she has found her perfect subject in handsome and shy Benji from a nearby estate.
But when their spark of romance catches fire, 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?.
