Cinematographer Hubert Taczanowski shot director Hugo Blick’s follow up to The Honourable Woman, provisionally entitled Black Earth Rising starring John Goodman and BAFTA-winner Michaela Coel, last year… first images now released.

Playing out across the UK, Europe, Africa and the USA, Black Earth Rising explores issues of justice, guilt and self-determination. The story centres on Kate Ashby (Coel) who was rescued as a young child during the Rwandan genocide and adopted by Eve Ashby (Walter), a world class British prosecutor in international criminal law. Kate was raised in Britain and, now in her late twenties, she works as a legal investigator in the law chambers of Michael Ennis (Goodman). When Eve takes on a case at the International Criminal Court, prosecuting an African militia leader, the story detonates, pulling Michael and Kate into a journey that will upend their lives forever.

Filmed in 2017 Black Earth Rising is a co-production between BBC2 and Netflix.
