UK-based 'Yardie drama' to close British Urban Film Festival

FESTIVAL: Residential

A FILM, described as a 'London-based Yardie drama', will close the British Urban Film Festival on September 20.

Residential, Demus Pascall's debut feature, starring Aubrey Whyte, Juanita Ingram, Jevon Brown, Bola Oke, Louis Jordan and Lawrence Brown, will also premiere at the annual ceremony.

With a list of producers including former Radio 1 DJ Chris Goldfinger, Residential follows the journey into the deep and cold blooded mind of Bolo, (played by Aubrey Whyte) a paranoid sociopath with a vision to set up life back home in Jamaica with his family.

Bolo’s days on the streets of South London as a prolific ‘Don’ have expired and he realises it’s time to step down but not before agreeing to do ‘one more’ drug transaction with Kingston Jamaica’s most wanted person of interest, ‘Fats’.

He plans to fully legitimise himself with the profits, never to look back. Things take an ugly turn when ‘Freshers’, his childhood friend is mysteriously gunned down in a vicious set up, forcing Bolo to return to the life that he’s been trying to escape from, not knowing that an unexpected fate awaits him that will shake the foundations of everything that he’s ever believed in.

K.D. Pascall began his filmmaking career in 2004 as a video journalist on the ‘Streetz Incarcerated’ DVD. During his time there, Pascall interviewed artists such as Skepta, Dizzee Rascall, 50 Cent, Krept & Konan, Lethal B, Giggs and Chipmunk.

Residential (to be hosted by Travis Jay & Akua Gyamfi) will receive its’ UK and World premiere at Odeon Swiss Cottage on 20 September as part of a closing night double-header of films which also includes a documentary about tennis superstar Althea Gibson.
