Actor David Oyelowo (Selma, Lee Daniels’ The Butler) and director Amma Asante (Belle, A Way of Life) will be in DC on February 3rd ahead of the British film A United Kingdom‘s stateside February 10th debut.
The movie chronicles the romantic relationship between Botswana’s first president Seretse Kharma (David Oyelowo) and a white woman from London, Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike). Their 1948 marriage sparked international outrage just as apartheid was taking hold in South Africa.
Writers interested in speaking with David and/or Amma during their time in DC are encouraged to contact Mallory Wuhrer (tel:+1-202-742-8750, MWuhrer@alliedim.com). A screening will take place before the interview.
