Q&A with Clint Dyer for SUS screening at New Voices in Black Cinema festival (Feb. 4 & 7)
As most of you know, Tambay and I are curators of an independent Black film series that has recently expanded into a five-day festival as well – ActNow: New Voices in Black Cinema.
The festival itself starts next Friday, February 4th and runs until Wednesday February 9th, and ActNow is proud to show the acclaimed British film SUS, starring (and produced by) Clint Dyer, directed by Robert Heath and written by acclaimed dramatist Barrie Keeffe. Tambay reviewed it here months ago.
With most of our lineup, ActNow’s blogger Tanya St. Louis has interviewed the directors or producers of the films, and here is her brief interview with Mr. Clint Dyer himself.
Please read it below and help spread the word about this important new film festival.
TANYA ST. LOUIS: Clint Dyer is the actor and producer of the film SUS and I was lucky enough to ask him a few questions about SUS. If one of your questions were not answered here please come to the screening on Monday February 7th at 9:30pm. Director Robert Heath will be there to answer all your SUS related questions.
Now on to the interview.
TANYA ST. LOUIS: You were involved in the stage version of SUS. How did you get involved in the play and how did you find yourself starring in the film?
What lessons did you learn while filming SUS?
What challenges did you incur while acting in such a powerful film?
Did you face any objections bringing sus laws to light?
What impact do you think this film will have on our Brooklyn audience?
How will audiences who have seen both stage version of SUS react to the film adaptation?
What can you tell us about your next project?
If you’re in the NY tri-state area, come out to Brooklyn this Friday February 4th at 4:30pm or Monday February 7th at 9:30pm and watch SUS on the big screen at BAM Rose Cinemas , 30 Lafayette Avenue near Downtown Brooklyn.
