Genevieve Nnaji attended the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF)for the premiere of Half of A Yellow Sun.While at the TIFF, Genevieve made an appearance on “George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight” which airs on Canadian network – CBC.
During the interview she was asked whether Nigeria went through a tumultuous time during the Biafra war in the 1960s and if it was reflected in the film, to which Genevieve answered “I’m young I don’t remember”, this elicited laughter from the show’s host, as he said to her “You must have read the book?”
“I learned a lot about the past from this present movie that I did… I learned a lot about our struggles, especially as easterners. I’m from the east, we’re called the Igbo tribe and we were greatly involved in the war.
“You do realize there were a lot of restrictions that aren’t there now. And as children we weren’t told — and I think people, our parents, tried to shield us from the truth that they faced.
“But I think it’s a good thing if we knew a bit of our history. Hopefully that’ll be cultivated into the schools.”
