Synopsis

Having recently moved to London from Jamaica little Jemima is found on the street by street-wise Johnny a five-year old boy from the area. Taking her on a tour of the neighborhood we watch Johnny and Jemima form a special friendship, innocent to the racial tensions within the community spearheaded by Johnny’s father. It is only when the parents of the two children begin to worry about them that Johnny’s father is forced to question his racist views. Directed by African-born actor and anti-Apartheid activist Lionel Ngakane, Jemima + Johnny offers a refreshingly optimistic window into a pocket of 1960s London and racial tensions within a community that still resonate today.
