Jul 17, 2020, 06:24 PM

Edith's guest on our latest Soundtracking is a truly inspirational actor, writer and director, whose credits include Belle, A United Kingdom, Where Hands Touch and Mrs America.

Amma Asante's big break came in Grange Hill, in a role that saw her invited to the White House by Nancy Reagan as part of the Just Say No anti-drugs campaign. She subsequently wrote for television before making her first feature in 2004, A Way Of Life.

We hear about the music that's featured in Amma's work, and also her trip to Washington and the after-party thrown for her by none other than Prince.
