An Artist For Tea, Vol. 2

An Artist For Tea, Vol. 2

Playing tracks by

Marianne Faithful, Asaase Ase, Ebo Taylor, Sei Nazo and The African Brothers International.

Each month Charlotte Bonham-Carter and Gemma Tortella invite a different artist into the café-studio to talk about their work, with an expert's perspective too - conversation pauses now and then for a quality tune.

This month for their second podcast they are joined by the artist Doug Fishbone to talk about his film Elmina. This is a feature length Ghanaian film, made by and with an all Ghanaian cast and production team - the only difference is that Doug is the protagonist, playing the role of a local farmer. No-one in the film refers to the fact that he is a white man with an American accent, he is just another character like any other.

Joining Doug in the cafe is John Apea, the writer and producer of the film (as well as playing the main supporting role) giving his perspective on making a film that will be released conventionally in Ghana and the UK but has also spent time in the Tate Modern and will be shown in galleries in the future.

What a fascinating pair!
