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.

We Will Explore The Teachings of Earth Wind and Fire for the first half of the show and pick up where we left off reading Reunion of Souls for the second half.
Tonight we will discuss spirituality and access. There is supposed to be a New Age where people have access to new truths and spiritual growth, but the same people who have been shut ouf from the beginning, the poor and the people of color, are still being excluded from this so-called revival. That is what people think anyway. The God of Life still makes spiritual teachings available to everyone. In my case it all began with Earth, Wind, and Fire, a singing group that decided that it would make the age old knowledge from Africa, Egypt and various parts of the world, that is know as the mystic tradtion, available to everyone in their music. Earth, Wind, and Fire were my first gurus and it is no exxageration for me to say that they saved my life. This week we will explore the teachings that I gleaned from Earth, Wind, and Fire and their music.
We are going to examine why Black movements and culture are compromised and undermined historically.Why are we in this state of confusion?There is no plan,agenda,organizing,program or vision laid out for us.We are like sheep easily led by anyone with a loud voice who seem half way intelligent.We want to discuss the trivializing and devaluing of Black movements.I say this because even Black people do not take themselves seriously.The White man owns America.Donald Trump is America.America is a White land.America will never let us have power.Because they do not trust us.White people are not stupid.
Just who are #blacklivesmatter?Why are some factions pushing the Queer Agenda?Do they think Black people are stupid?These people have invaded the legitimate anger over Trevon Martin and co oped their movement with Black Nationalist without our consent.Let me give you a background ten years ago I was attacked by the LBGT movement just for not agreeing with their political stance on issues.Back then they openly attacked nationalist Paternalistic,Masculine,oppressive of women and antiquated.I ask you this,what is the sudden change?They have not changed.They are latching on to the nationalist energy to get a free ride.I along with Straightblackpride are on to them.If you can sell your agenda fine,BUT DO NOT THINK I HAVE TO SUPPORT IT BECAUSE WE ARE BOTH GRIEVING OVER TREVON MARTIN......A FIRE AND BRIMESTONE SERMON FROM THE KALAGENESIS TONIGHT
