Jemina & Johnny
In 1958, Notting Hill in West London erupted in vicious race riots. In South Africa in 1963, Nelson Mandela, the African National Congress leader, was imprisoned for life. Ngakane, a fellow ANC member, was exiled from South Africa and came to Britain to be a film director. JEMIMA & JOHNNY, his first fiction film, portrays the developing friendship between a white English boy and the young daughter of recent immigrants from the Caribbean, against the backdrop of a Notting Hill simmering with racial conflict.
