Synopsis: From humble beginnings in Northern England to the heat of the Congo he built his Empire. In 1911, after signing an agreement with the Belgium government, Lord Lever established palm oil plantations, but at what cost? A school trip to a museum opens the door to the past meeting the present; What has 100 years taught us, has today blurred into yesterday? A pithy and humorous script by Kai Jolley takes us on a journey never to be forgotten.

Finding Lever takes a subtle look at the way we view history and racism. It is a topical and touchy subject to tackle, but we think we’ve done it. If we don’t learn from the mistakes of the past what hope do we have for the future? History is what forms our culture, knowledge forms how we view it, understanding gives it reference.
