Read more
Episode 11 - The Whiteness of Film - BAFTA award winning writer and director Amma Asante hasn't shied away from talking about race - from her recent contributions to the "My White Best Friend (and Other Letters Left Unsaid" festival, to her films which feature mixed race abolitionist aristocrat "Belle", to the story of afro-germans under the Nazis - but are mainstream films always produced for the 'white gaze' and are there some stories we simply shouldn't subject to it? In this episode, Amma Asante joins Dr Myriam Francois to discuss whiteness in the film industry.

Edith's guest on our latest Soundtracking is a truly inspirational actor, writer and director, whose credits include Belle, A United Kingdom, Where Hands Touch and Mrs America.
