Pressure is a 1976 British drama film directed by Horace Ové and starring Herbert Norville, Oscar James and Frank Singuineau. It is hailed as the UK's first Black dramatic feature-length film, and has been characterised as "a gritty and dynamic study of a generation in crisis". Ové has said: "What Pressure tried to do was to portray the experience of the Windrush generation, the kids who came with them and the kids born here."
