We’ll be talking about the London Film Festival, which wraps up this weekend. Also in the studio with me and host Nikki Bedi are directors Dee Rees, whose film Mudbound was the Royal Bank of Canada Gala, and Rungano Nyoni, whose film I Am Not a Witch is screening this weekend as part of the First Feature Competition. (Sorry, it’s all sold out.) I will be reviewing both films soon, though my Mudbound review must wait till November, when it will debut on Netflix globally. I Am Not a Witch opens theatrically in the UK on October 20th; no sign of a US release yet. Both films are absolutely terrific.
My new “Arts Hour” episode airs several times between Sunday and next Tuesday, and will be available on iPlayer anytime after the first broadcast. Unlike BBC TV programs, the radio stuff is available globally, so you can listen no matter where you are. The episode page with all the info you need is here.
