Episode 47: A United Kingdom (with director Amma Asante)
This week we welcome Amma Asante, director of the acclaimed Belle and this week's A United Kingdom on to the Curzon Film Podcast.
The true story of Ruth Williams, a typist from London, and Seretse Khama, the prince of Bechuanaland, who fell in love in the late 1940's. Asante's film uses a sweeping romance as a gateway for a poignant and powerful film about race and politics; that feels as current now as it did then. On the podcast this week are Sam Howlett, Harry Chapman and Jake Cunningham.
