In 2018, a young musician from rural Jamaica called Dalton Harris became the first non-British and Black man to win The X Factor UK and, with it, a lucrative record deal that promised to transform his life.

Co-directors Kim Longinotto and Franky Murray Brown chart Dalton’s journey as he’s catapulted into the limelight and pressure builds from all directions. They capture an extraordinary and talented young man wrestling with the weight of expectations and with his own identity.

The preview screening on Thursday the 1st of February was followed by a Q&A with Dalton Harris and co-directors Franky Murray Brown and Kim Longinotto, hosted by journalist Jacqueline Springer.
