About the Q&A:
The great Idris Elba (The Wire) discusses stylish and punchy directorial debut with BBC Radio 1Xtra presenter Yasmin Evans, broadcast live via satellite broadcast.
About the film:
Set in 1970s Kingston and 1980s Hackney, Yardie, centres on the life of a young Jamaican man named D (Aml Ameen), who has never fully recovered from the murder of his older brother.
D grows up under the wing of a Kingston Don and music producer named King Fox (Sheldon Shepherd), who dispatches him to London.
There he reconnects with his childhood sweetheart, Yvonne (Shantol Jackson), and his daughter who he's not seen since she was a baby. He also hooks up with a soundclash crew, called High Noon.
But before Yvonne can convince him to follow "the righteous path," he encounters his brother's killer, and embarks on a bloody quest which brings him into conflict with vicious London gangster Rico (Stephen Graham).
