Netribution readers of a certain age will recall this writer/director playing a schoolgirl role in Grange Hill. She's moved on from there and gone behind the camera, becoming the first black woman to write and produce her own TV drama. Now she's turned to directing and her formidible talent sees her debut cinema offering scooping a shelf-full of awards, including a Carl Forman Award at the BAFTAs as Best Newcomer. In this, her first feature, she not only produced a good film on a low budget, but did so with a very young largely untried, but clearly talented cast. She's quite a sister, Amma Asante.
