BFI Future Film are hosting a FREE film screening of Kicks next Monday (15th May), at 3pm in NFT2, BFI Southbank! You’ll be joined by director Justin Tipping and Actor Christopher Jordan Wallace for a post screening Q&A.

Kicks is a hip-hop driven coming of age tale, about friendship codes and inner-city masculinity. Fifteen-year-old Brandon (Jahking Guillory) longs for a pair of the freshest sneakers that money can buy, assuming that merely having them on his feet will help him escape the reality of being poor, neglected by the opposite sex, and picked on by everyone—even his best friends. Working hard to get them, he soon finds that the titular shoes have instead made him a target after they are promptly snatched by local hood Flaco (Kofi Siriboe). Seemingly the embodiment of menace, Flaco harbors complexities of his own that will be revealed when Brandon goes on a mission to retrieve his stolen sneakers with his two best friends in town.
