Listen To Interview With ‘Half Of A Yellow Sun’ Director Biyi Bandele

null

As I reported last l week Half of a Yellow Sun director Biyi

Bandele was interviewed by Nadia

Denton (The Black British Filmmaker’s Guide to Success: Finance, Market and

Distribute Your Film) this weekend at the Watersprite Cambridge International Student Film Festival in the U.K.

Luckily for all of us, now an audio recording of the

entire hour long conversation is now available for everyone to listen.

Among the many things that Bandele talks about is how he

got started directing films and his early film career and the physical toll it

took on him and the cast and crew to make the film and he addresses extensively

as well the controversy over the casting of Thandie Newton in the female lead

role in the film.
