Cary Fukunaga

Director Cary Fukunga and actress Mia Wasikowska talk about their film Jane Eyre that released in 2011. This is Fukunaga’s second feature film. His first feature film was Sin Nombre (Nameless) that he wrote and directed. The film was received well and won him a clutch of awards.

In this 2011 interview we talk to Fukunaga and Wasikowska about the making of Charlotte Brontë‘s famous novel into a film. What was it about this novel that drew Fukunaga to make the film? When did Waskikowska first read Jane Eyre? We also spoke about the notion of home, family and companionship. Michael Fassbender and Wasikowska were his first choice as actors for the film.


We spoke to Fukunaga about growing up Oakland and the kinds of books he read. Alex Haley’s Roots was one of his favorite books.

Fukunaga is back with his new film Beasts of No Nation that is releasing in theaters and on Netflix on Oct 16, 2015. We have an interview with Fukunga and Abraham Attah, the teenager actor, who acts as the child soldier.
