'Half Of A Yellow Sun' Gets Week Long Engagement In Chicago In June


What? Yet another

article about Half of a Yellow Sun I can hear you saying.

But wait, don’t

leave before I have to tell you that I have some good news for our readers in the

Chicagoland area.


Bandele’s feature film, which is being distributed by Monterey Media and stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, John Boyega, Anika Noni Rose, Joseph Mawle

and Genevieve Nnaji, is a drama that weaves together the lives of four people

swept up in the turbulence of civil war, with a newly independent 1960s Nigeria

as the backdrop.

The good news is that it was announced

earlier today that the film will open in Chicago in late June for a week’s engagement, starting June 20 through 26. The film will play exclusively

only at the Gene Siskel Film Center in downtown Chicago.
