heartsstarve

"Half of a Yellow Sun" will be the centerpiece film of African Film Festival, Inc. at Lincoln Center…May 9, 2014, 7pm (Q&A with Biyi Bandele and some cast members)"Half of a Yellow Sun" (Biyi Bandele, Nigeria/UK, 2013, 113m): With epic grandeur, Half of a Yellow Sun tell the story of a generation living through the tumult of Nigeria’s independence and the ensuing Nigerian-Biafran War through the thorny romantic journeys of two sisters. Olanna (Thandie Newton) is married to Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor), a revolutionary who fathers a child with another woman. Her twin sister Kainene (Anika Noni Rose) is in love with a British writer (Joseph Mawle) who has come to Nigeria to teach. Playwright Biyi Bandele makes his film directorial debut with this adaptation of Nigerian writer Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s Orange Prize–winning novel. Half of a Yellow Sun may take place 50 years ago, but Bandale has fashioned it as an emotionally gripping example of contemporary Nigerian cinema, and honors the ongoing strength of that country’s women in the process.http://www.africanfilmny.org/

The Oxford Diaries: (7) 4 Material Culture Books I Love

OxfordDiariesAccording to GoodReads, I am 5 books behind schedule. According to GoodReads, I am pretty much a reading failure. But what I don’t include in my GR is all of the articles, books and stuff I have to read on a daily basis for grad school. If I included those, I’d have busted through my 50 book goal by the end of January.
