Censor Board Approves Viewing of ‘Half A Yellow Sun’ -PM News



Nigerian censors on Friday approved the release of the civil war film “Half of a Yellow Sun” after a more than two-month delay during which the producers agreed to edit certain scenes.

The film, based on the best-selling novel of the same name and starring Oscar-nominated British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor, is about the 1967-1970 Biafra War which killed more than a million people, many from starvation.
