Netflix has unveiled a sneak peek of Daniel Kaluuya’s directorial debut, “The Kitchen,” with an image that teases the London-based dystopian drama, Digital Spy reports.
Closing the 67th BFI London Film Festival, the film showcases Kaluuya’s first foray into directing alongside co-director Kibwe Tavares. Ahead of its festival premiere, the streaming giant released a still featuring Kane Robinson of Top Boy fame, and newcomer Jedaiah Bannerman in their roles. Robinson, portraying Izi, is clad in black on a motorcycle, while Bannerman’s Benji stands in a grey hoodie. They stand against a rundown building, assumed to be “The Kitchen”, a defiant community featured in the film.
Co-written by Kaluuya and Joe Murtagh, the film follows Izi’s journey as he navigates leaving a life of crime while caring for his sick son.
