A prolific Nigerian playwright, novelist and screenwriter now based in London, HALF OF A YELLOW SUN is Biyi Bandele’s feature film directorial debut. This first feature follows his distinguished career writing and directing plays for the Royal Shakespeare Company, Royal Court, and writing screenplays for the BBC and British and international film productions.
Bandele has previously written and directed a short, THE KISS (2009), a psychological thriller.
For television, Bandele wrote Not Even God is Wise Enough directed by Danny Boyle for BBC2 in 1994. His prolific writing for theatre includes his adaptation of Aphra Benn’s Oroonoko, which was a huge hit for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2000, and was successfully revived by New York’s Theatre for a New Audience in 2007. Bandele’s fiction writing includes Burma Boy published by Jonathan Cape in 2007 (published as The King’s Rifle, Harper Collins in the US in 2009).
Film Synopsis: Olanna (Thandie Newton) and Kainene (Anika Noni Rose) are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Upon returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the “revolutionary professor” Odenigbo (Chiwetel Ejiofor) in the dusty university town of Nsukka; Kainene turns out to be a fiercely successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests, and surprises even herself when she falls in love with Richard (Joseph Mawle), an English writer. They become caught up in the events of the Nigerian civil war, in which the lgbo people fought an impassioned struggle to establish Biafra as an independent republic.

Is this Church truly following the VISION of the God and Christ written of in the bible?
In these difficult days and times we often look to spiritual leaders for guidance and instruction in our lives. As Christians (followers of Christ) should these leaders speak from their mind, or from what is written based on the word of God? This show will examine things said by men and woman claiming to be Gods ministers to reveal whether or not they are speaking Gods word and doing his will. 1Pet 4: 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth: that God in all things may be glorified through JesusChrist, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.We hope you tune in and listen to our show. We air programs on Blog Talk Radio at the following times: Sun 2:00pm, Tue 8:00pm, Wed 7:00pm, Fri 7:00pm & Sat 9:00am all eastern time.
On today's show we have a special guest Reverend Rosamaria Machado known internationally as ROSA BRANCO , the White Rose,is a healing medium of incredible force and impact.From a very early age she could see subtle energies and now does work with Light Entities .An Engineer at the Kennedy Space Center Rosamaria Machado was climbing the corporate ladder rapidly, until a terminal diagnosis led her to John of God , a Brazilian Medium and Healer .John of God reminded her: “you are not using your GIFTS child”. One year and a half later, after countless hours of reflection and meditation, Rosamaria realized she was not fulfilling her purpose. Healed of cancer by GOD through the Brazilian Medium, she realized she must do God’s will and has devoted herself to helping others. For many years she accompanied John of God as an interpreter, in support of his mission. John of God recently conveyed to Rosamaria, during a spiritual retreat to Abadiânia, Brazil, “You have permission to go any where in the world as a representative of God”. She began her international ministry, working with the highest levels of energies. As an ordained minister, Rosamaria sees her purpose in this life to facilitate each soul’s growth to a higher consciousness. Her main focus is to awaken the consciousness of humanity to the spiritual truths which leads to our ascension. A pioneer in the conscious use of the Human Energy Field, the former USA/NASA engineer has been researching and exploring, for more than 25 years, ways for individuals to tap into and use their Energy Field to heal and transform their lives.To arrange a private session with Rosamaria, in Oxford Florida.

We live in a world where most walk around without HOPE. When I'm out in public I tend to look deep into people's eyes and I do not see people enjoying life as Christ said He came to bring John 10:10 ...us life more abundantly. The first half of this scripture says the devil comes as a thief to steal, kill and destroy. I see that people's dreams, hopes, joy and abundant life has been stolen from them. Let's be reminded of the promises of God and that He has conquered the devil once and for all. Colossians 2:15
