Back in 2016 we spoke to some of the talent behind what was to be the winner of the 2017 Academy Award for Best Picture, Barry Jenkins' Moonlight - featuring interviews with writer Tarell Alvin McCraney and actors Travante Rhodes and Janelle Monáe.

It’s not a judgmental film, it’s really just holding a mirror up to the lives of young black men, young black women who are all intertwined. All needing something from one another, all leaning on each other and they have these nuanced lives

From the Archive sees us dig into our extensive contemporary and classical music and cinema podcast archive as we rediscover interviews and discussions with artists, with our long-standing producer and presenter, Ben Eshmade.
