Episode notes

For this edition of This Is My Cinema, we sit down with the incredible Arinzé Kene to explore his work on the stage and screen, ahead of his performance as Bob Marley, in the new production of Get Up, Stand Up. Through the conversation we cover the impact that an early screening of Spike Lee's Do The Right Thing had on Arinzé, we also explore his performance as Sam Cooke in the original stage version of One Night in Miami and why he carries a journal wherever he goes. Welcoming come to This Is My Cinema, a podcast from the British Independent Film Awards. The show is called This Is My Cinema and it’s all about celebrating the very best talent in the British film scene and the cinema experiences that made them who they are today.  Our hosts Michael Leader and Rhianna Dhillon will be talking to rising stars and legendary names from in front of and behind the camera, exploring their origins in filmmaking, their inspirations, their memories of the cinemas they grew up visiting and of course whether they take their popcorn salty, sweet - or wouldn’t dream of taking food to a film at all.  This is my cinema is a Little Dot Studios production for BIFA The show is hosted by Rhianna Dhilllon and Michael Leader It’s produced by Jake Cunningham, Ellie Aitken and Harold McShiel And we’re edited by Content is Queen
