Femi Oyeniran (best known from Kidulthood, Adulthood) made his directoral debut with "Fresh Off The Boat", which looks at a young boy making the transition from Nigeria to London and his challenges culturally and socially.

LOL I kept bugging Femi for an embed code as I thought Batlow posted it on UGK's blog - he didn't, he print'screened - so I copied! Click the image to watch the film.

The film is featured in Film London's 'Best Of Boroughs' competiton. Watch the film HERE and vote for it; Femi has big plans for it, including developing a television series based around it. Voting finishes next month, so make sure you vote and support.
