Episode notes

In this episode of the BIFA podcast actors Bukky Bakray and Samuel Adewunmi explore how what they watched, from the sofa and the cinema, transformed them into the talents they are today.

Making their debuts in the last few years, and recently starring together in drama series You Don't Know Me, Samuel won 2019's Most Promising Newcomer BIFA and was nominated for Best Actor for his work in Shola Amoo’s stunning drama The Last Tree. Bukky was nominated for Best Actress and Most Promising Newcomer BIFAs in 2020 for her remarkable central performance as the title character in Sarah Gavron’s Rocks (BIFA Best British Independent Film 2020), and has recently moved behind the camera, writing and directing as well.

In this podcast the two explore their most memorable cinema visits, from Black Panther to cult classic The Room, the emotional similarities between Moonlight and Scooby Doo and why the ‘dirtiness’ of British film makes it great.
