Trailer for Kibwe Tavares & Daniel Kaluuya’s Dystopian Drama ‘THE KITCHEN’ Stresses the Importance of Family, Community, and Individuality

Netflix has today debuted the official trailer for Kibwe Tavares and Daniel Kaluuya‘s feature directing debut, the dystopian science fiction drama The Kitchen which wowed audiences when it premiered as the closing film of the 67th BFI London Film Festival on October 15, 2023.

10 years in the making, The Kitchen is an original story from Kaluuya, Tavares and Daniel Emmerson (“Calm With Horses”) and marks the feature film debut of Kane Robinson a.k.a. Kano (“Top Boy”).

Addressing community, inequality, family, class, joy, resilience, courage, defiance, and care in London – and communities around the globe, The Kitchen takes place in a dystopian London where the gap between rich and poor has been stretched to its limits. All forms of social housing have been eradicated and only The Kitchen remains. A community that refuses to move out of the place they call home. This is where we meet a solitary Izi (Robinson), living here by necessity and desperately trying to find a way out, and a 12-year-old Benji (Jedaiah Bannerman), who has lost his mother and is searching for a family. We follow our unlikely pair as they struggle to forge a relationship in a system that is stacked against them.

Emmerson and Kaluuya are producing the film and additional cast includes Hope Ikpoku Jr (“Top Boy”, former professional footballer Ian Wright, BackRoad Gee, Cristale, Teija Kabs, and Demmy Ladipo.

The Kitchen will release exclusively in select UK cinemas from January 12, 2024 and on Netflix from January 19.
