Rogue One

Cinema magazine programme. Francine Stock talks to Gareth Edwards, director of the first Star Wars spin-off, Rogue One.

Francine Stock talks to Gareth Edwards, the director of the first Star Wars spin-off, Rogue One, who reveals what makes his film so different from the seven other episodes in the franchise. Adam Rutherford tries to explain how Rogue One fits into the ever-expanding Star Wars universe and why some works have been deemed "non-canonical".

Few directors can be genuinely described as unique. Rama Burshtein has that honour, being the first and only female film-maker who is part of the Orthodox Jewish community. Her latest work, Through The Wall, is a rom-com about an Israeli woman who arranges her own wedding, despite the fact that she has no groom, in the belief that God will provide.
