Thousands have risen up to show their support for this black film and the whole industry is watching; will another black film do well at the box office? Is there a true renaissance of black films in global cinema? Is the wider notion that black films don’t sell – dead?
Questions that are been asked; and only the target audience can sustain the recent success into an ongoing reality by been pro-active and putting our lovely “Bums On Seats!”
The film industry has seen fit to give us black films one after another since 2013, Baggage Claim, The Butler, Black Nativity, 12 Years A Slave & now ‘Half of A Yellow Sun’ (also got to mention the urban film Starred Up), so now the only way to encourage and influence the development of more film productions that reflects black culture is to take heed at this ‘CALL TO ACTION’ and GO SEE ‘Half of A Yellow Sun’.
