MONTEREY MEDIA CONGRATULATES OUR FILMMAKERS AND STARS WHO ARE AMONG THE TOP NOMINEES FOR THE 46TH ANNUAL NAACP IMAGE AWARDS

"Half of a Yellow Sun" (monterey media inc.)
- Nominated for Outstanding Independent Motion Picture


Half of a Yellow Sun stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Thandie Newton, Anika Noni Rose and John Boyega. A sweeping romantic drama, Half of a Yellow Sun takes the sisters and their lovers on a journey through the war which is powerful, intensely emotional and, as the response of readers around the world has shown, it is a story which can touch everyone's heart. Premiered at TIFF and based upon the world-wide acclaimed novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

Celebrated playwright Biyi Bandele's directorial debut chronicles the tumult of Nigeria's independence and ensuing Nigerian-Biafran War (1967-1970), a conflict prompted by the attempted secession of Nigeria's southeastern region and its formation into the short-lived Republic of Biafra was produced by Andrea Calderwood of Slate Films.


"The film is gorgeous, evocative, and easily the highlight of Newton's achievements as an actress"
- Vanity Fair

"A well-acted, finely wrought epic... The faultless '60s art direction helps to bring the milieu to life, as do Mr. Ejiofor's and Ms. Newton's typically stormy performances."
- The New York Times

"Superb performances, particularly from Thandie Newton and Anika Noni Rose. This geographically restless story can hardly fail to engross, particularly with Newton at the top of her game."
- Variety
