Femi Ladi is a British Nigerian director who has a talent for subtle storytelling, his films take the everyday human experience and make it sublime.
He lives and works a lot with working-class communities and those from the most underrepresented of communities. His films have a distinct warmth and affinity for the subjects. He is known for his characteristic subtext and light humour. Ladi challenges archetypes, letting characters mature naturally before an audience, with residual impact.
Ladi is continually inspired by the convergence of his community, the stories that materialise within the fabric and texture of multicultural lives and experiences within London, and its multidimensional offerings.
His commercial work includes brands such as Heathrow’s “Meanwhile at Heathrow” film, London Screen Academy, Bose, HP, David Harewood, and Adidas.
