Quick chat: Pierre-Emmanuel Urcun (co-director, 2Morrow Far Away)

In the lead-up to, and during, Film Africa 2013, we’ll be finding out more about our talented directors through snappy interviews.

First up is Pierre-Emmanuel Urcun, co-director of the compelling  2Morrow Far Away, an upbeat, innovative hybrid of documentary and fiction following the fortunes of four young people from a Parisian suburb who, in 2010, had the opportunity to become reporters at the football World Cup in South Africa.

The film screens in our main programme on Sat 9 November at 17:00 at Ritzy Cinema. We’re delighted to be welcoming Pierre-Emmanuel for a post-screening Q&A. For more information, and to buy tickets, click here.
