For the latest podcast Ali talks to Peter Mackie Burns (below, right), the director of critically acclaimed new British film Daphne, starring Emily Beecham in the title role, and which has Geraldine James among the support.
The two talk about the film, the collaborative process of building the central character, the importance of place, the influences on the film, the secret to good casting, Burns’ earlier work, and how he got to this stage in his career.
