BGN interviews Academy Award-winning actor Mahershala Ali and Director Benjamin Cleary for the Apple TV+ film Swan Song.
Set in the near future, Swan Song is a powerful, emotional journey told through the eyes of Cameron (Mahershala Ali), a loving husband and father who is expecting his second child with his wife Poppy (Naomie Harris). When Cameron is diagnosed with a terminal illness, he is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief.
As Cameron grapples with whether or not to alter his family’s fate, he learns more about life and love than he ever imagined. Written and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Benjamin Cleary, Swan Song explores how far we will go, and how much we’re willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love.
