What? Yet another article about "Half of a Yellow Sun" I can hear you saying.

But wait, don’t leave before I tell you that I have some good news for our readers in the Chicagoland area.

Biyi Bandele's feature film, which is being distributed by Monterey Media, and stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, John Boyega, Anika Noni Rose, Joseph Mawle and Genevieve Nnaji, is a drama that weaves together the lives of four people swept up in the turbulence of civil war, with a newly independent 1960's Nigeria as the backdrop.

The good news is that the film will finally open in Chicago this month, for a week’s engagement, starting next Friday, June 20 through 26.

The film will play exclusively only at the Gene Siskel Film Center in downtown Chicago. For more information and to order tickets online go HERE
