The Last Tree (World Cinema Dramatic Competition)

Who: Shola Amoo, director

Logline: A semi-autobiographical coming of age drama, exploring family, identity, and culture.

An audience watching my film probably won’t know that: we shot the Lincolnshire field scenes in the sea at low tide.

The greatest flash of inspiration or brilliance we had making this film was: doing a couple of scenes in single takes, including one particular five-minute sequence.

A darling I had to kill along the way was: an eight-minute uncut sequence that was eventually cut down to a five-minute uncut sequence.

When I heard we got into Sundance I: danced to my favorite rapper, Casisdead.

I would love to meet Jordan Peele in Park City.
