A new restoration by the BFI National Archive and The Film Foundation.

Directed and written by Trinidadian director Horace Ové, Pressure is acclaimed to be the first black feature film. It is an honest demonstration of the lives of young black men effected by the prejudiced system, specifically institutional racism. The story follows the struggles of Tony, who despite his academic successes, is alienated from any job opportunities, due to the colour of his skin. Paralysed by his identity struggles and the system, he tries to find a sense of purpose in the streets.
