Into Film meets the cast & crew of Belle

Based on the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle, the illegitimate mixed race daughter of a Royal Navy Admiral, new period drama Belle looks set to sweep audiences away with its tender drama, impressive costume design and moral centre.

Wanting to find out more, we sent reporter Dylan to meet the people who took Belle from painting to the screen, including director Amma Asante, screenwriter Misan Sagay and lead actress, Gugu Mabatha Raw.

Into Film reporters are school children and college pupils aged 9 – 18 from across the UK who, through the charity, have the opportunity to be introduced to different aspects of the film industry. This includes reporting at events and interviewing film talent — many for the first time, bringing interviews to their peers from their own perspective.
