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.
Are parents who aren't married influencing people who want to get married to remain single?
Many people who think about having children want to get married. It's the traditional way of raising a family, it often eases the pain of managing finances, children are said to be better adjusted in a household where there are two married parents and the fit into society seems to be a good one for married people.
Many parents who are not married make ways to make a decent living and provide for their children financially, emotionally and educationally. Some fair better than their married counterparts.
Some single parents are eligible for assistance programs such as grants to send their children to private schools. This can be the case even if they make a decent wage. Is that fair to married couples?
What are some things that single parents benefit from that married parents might not get?
What about the stigma of having multiple children by different moms or dads? Why do some find it easier to deal with this stigma than others do?
With so many single parents in our communities nowadays, is being a single parent a big deal anymore or has it become something that we've come to expect and accept?
There are many people who refuse to have children without being married and others who refuse to date anyone who has kids. Is that right?
Is being married a badge of honor?
Is being a single parent unacceptable?
All my single parents should come out for this one whether you like being single or not because this one is gonna be hot! Tell your story and how you feel.
