On Sunday 11th September The Latymer School was the backdrop for the filming of a new film called ‘Farming’. The film stars Kate Beckinsale, Damson Idris and Gugu Mbatha-Raw and is an autobiographical story based on Akinnuoye-Agbaje’s Annenberg award-winning screenplay. Damson Idris plays the led role of Enitan, a young Nigerian boy, “farmed out” by his parents to a white British family in the hope of giving him a better future.
Instead, he grows up to be the feared leader of a white skinhead gang in 1980s England; explaining why some may have seen a large ‘skinhead’ group at Latymer last weekend! We are very excited about the film and look forward to Latymer taking a starring, albeit short role.
