The god in Idris Elba

2 April 2011 4:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

With a mother from Ghana and a father from Sierra Leone, Idris Elba was brought up in east London before finding fame in America. As he takes his place in Kenneth Branagh's Thor, we send Afua Hirsch, half-Ghanaian herself, to unpick this most modern of British actors

Idris Elba wants to know, on a scale of one to 10, how intimidating I find him in person. "Do you think I'm terrifying?" he asks. "I always wondered about that."

It's a glorious spring afternoon in south London's leafy Richmond and we are lounging in sunlight in an old-fashioned hotel bar. Elba, who is sitting sideways on the sofa opposite me, has moulded his tall frame into the cushions and is chuckling with a gruff laugh. He needs a shave – there are speckles of grey in his stubble – but other than that the 38-year-old is instantly recognisable.

How you would recognise him depends on your TV sensibilities. »

“Restless City” Director Andrew Dosunmu Wants To Please His Ancestors

10 March 2011 1:54 PM, PST | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

Restless City, a film that’s received a fair amount of S&A coverage including a review by Tambay here, doesn’t have a neat little inception story. Filmmaker and photographer Andrew Dosunmu told aleim.com he developed the low-budget flick from old-fashioned annoyance.

“The genesis of Restless City was born out of my frustration with trying to make another film (Mother of George) that I was having problems getting financed,” Dosunmu explains. “I got tired of waiting for things to happen. My thought was, ‘I’m a filmmaker, I should be making films.’ I just wanted to create something.”

He went on to collaborate with screenwriter Eugene M. Gussenhoven and they developed the story of an African immigrant surviving on the fringes of New York City. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year.

In this film, the self-taught photographer wanted to examine the theme of displacement. »
