Small Axe: Mangrove Australia Premiere Sun 3 July on ABC TV



Frank Crichlow (Shaun Parkes), the proprietor of the Caribbean restaurant Mangrove in Notting Hill, which serves as a vibrant gathering place for residents, intellectuals, and activists, is the focus of the movie.

In a reign of racist terror, the local police raid Mangrove time after time, making Frank and the local community take to the streets in peaceful protest in 1970. Nine people—including Frank, Altheia Jones-LeCointe (Letitia Wright), the leader of the British Black Panther Movement, and activist Darcus Howe (Malachi Kirby)—are falsely detained and accused of inciting riots. A highly publicised trial that follows results in a tenacious victory for those fighting discrimination.

Letitia Wright (Black Panther), Shaun Parkes (Lost In Space), and Malachi Kirby (Curfew) star alongside Rochenda Sandall (Line Of Duty), Jack Lowden (The Long Song), Sam Spruell (Snow White And The Huntsmen), Gershwyn Eustache (The Gentleman), Nathaniel Martello-White (Collateral), Richie Campbell (Liar), Jumayn Hunter (Les Miserables), and Gary Beadle (Summer Of Rockets). Mangrove was co-written by Alastair Siddons and Steve McQueen.

Airdate: Sunday 3 July 2022 at 9.30pm on ABC TV.
