Today on the show, Giles Alderson and fellow host Dom Lenoir welcome the team behind the incredible and hugely important film The Killing of Kenneth Chamberlain that is based on the true story of the events leading up to the death of Kenneth Chamberlain Sr.: Writer-director-producer David Midell and actor-producer Enrico Natale.
They dive deep into the making of their feature film: How they found the story, how they reached out not only to the Kenneth Chamberlain’s family but also to the police, and how they dealt with making a film based on real events with a sensitive topic like this.
David not only talks about how he wrote the script, but also about directing the actors, mental health, and how they shot the movie. Enrico talks about his experience on set, what it was like working with the one and only Frankie Faison, how the Morgan Freeman came on board as an executive producer, and how the film was received at festivals. AND they share what it was like to watch the film with Kenneth Chamberlain’s family.
Honestly, do go watch this film! It was a great pleasure to speak to these two great filmmakers. So, sit back, relax, and enjoy this week’s episode with David Midell & Enrico Natale.
