Andrea Levy and Zadie Smith

Cinema Education Team | 2021 | 120 MINS
Illustrated Talk - Studio

To mark Black History Month, we present an illustrated talk by the Chichester Cinema Education Team, which will look at the TV adaptations of two novels by each of these British-Jamaican authors.

In Detail

Andrea Levy, born in London to Jamaican parents, her father having crossed on the Windrush, died in 2019 at the age of 62, leaving behind two collections of short stories and five novels, including 'Small Island' and 'The Long Song'. The first concerns a Jamaican man who returns to England after WW2, having served in the RAF, while the second is set on a sugar plantation in 19th century Jamaica.

Zadie Smith was also born in London, to a Jamaican mother and an English father, and she is the also the author of five novels, including 'White Teeth', an epic narrative of multicultural post-war England and NW, a tragicomic London story.

As with our previous Page to Screen events, the Education Team will be considering how successfully these stories navigated the transition from the book to the small screen, including a range of clips from each series.
