ACU|BIEN presents a series of conversations with leading cultural ambassadors and personalities.
In this 2nd Edition, I had the absolute honour and delight to sit down with Satellite Award winner CCH Pounder during her visit to London for the red carpet premiere of the Home Again film. CCH Pounder’s catalogue of film and television work is extensive and includes the like of “Mo’at” in James Cameron’s “Avatar”, “The Shield,” “Bagdad Café,” “Warehouse 13, “Face/Off” and “Sons of Anarchy”.
In this utterly absorbing conversation, CCH Pounder talks about her experience in the making of the movie Home Again, which dramatically deals with plight of deportees who have been return to Jamaica; and provides personal insight into the moment when she became an actor-activist. The Georgetown, Guyana (British Guiana) born, English educated, American actor plays ‘Dulsay Mooreland’, a mother who ‘got so busy’ working and trying to survive and provide the best for her son, she made a fatal error that caused his demise.
