Bafta winner to face pupils' questions at screening

A Bafta-winning producer is holding a question and answer session for pupils at a South Gloucestershire school.

Charles Steel, who worked on the The Last King of Scotland, will be screening his new documentary Fire in Babylon at Downend School's film club.

Fifty pupils will then be able to quiz the production team and cast at the event on Monday.

The club coordinators said the event will be a "fantastic extra-curricular opportunity for our pupils."

Tina Hanks and Nick Smith, who organised the event, said in a statement: "To be able to talk and discuss the film industry with Bafta-winning producer Charles Steel is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

"This may even inspire some of our pupils to consider a career in this profession."

Mr Steel was among the team credited when The Last King of Scotland won a Bafta for Outstanding British Film of the Year at the 2007 film awards.

This latest film, released 20 May and nominated for Best Documentary at the British Independent Film Awards, looks at West Indian cricket, music and politics in the 1970s and 80s.
