A Nigeria-born, Peckham-raised filmmaker-youthworker's guide to his roads

Arts+Culture First Look

Having lived in and around the estates of Peckham since the age of two, filmmaker Adeyemi Michael has seen his fair share of youngsters grow up. His current film, Sodiq, follows his journey to the heart of one of those kids – from teaching him soccer to watching him stand at the thresehold of a career in medicine, to seeing him convicted for murder. At one point during this Dazed-produced video portrait, he says: "I'm trying to get the young people to engage in Peckham. And realise it's theirs." It's a noble cause.
