Idris Elba makes a standout directorial debut with this adaptation of Victor Headley's cult novel about a young Jamaican with a score to settle.

Set in 1970s Kingston, Jamaica and 1980s Hackney, Yardie centre on the life of D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the brutal murder of his older brother. When he is sent to London, he unexpectedly finds the man who shot his brother 10 years earlier and embarks on a bloody, explosive quest for retribution - and a street war that could threaten his life and the lives of everyone he loves...

There will be a live music act (via Satellite) from 18:30 before an introduction by Radio 1Xtra's Yasmin Evans at 18:50. The film begins at 19:00 and will be followed by a Satellite Q&A with director Idris Elba. We will also screen Yardie for a week from Fri 31 Aug.
