Haris Zambarloukos is no stranger to collaborating with Kenneth Branagh. The two first worked together on Sleuth in 2007, and have joined forces for other projects including Thor, Murder on the Orient Express, and the upcoming sequel Death on the Nile. He’s gaining widespread recognition for one of the leading awards contenders this season, Branagh’s very personal film Belfast.
I had the chance to speak with Zambarloukos about his own relationship to Branagh’s story, shooting in black-and-white, and other takeaways from this exceptional film.

Interview with Cinematographer Haris Zambarloukos on Belfast
Film summary: Written and directed by Academy Award nominee Kenneth Branagh, Belfast is a poignant story of love, laughter and loss in one boy’s childhood, amid the music and social tumult of the late 1960s. The cast stars Golden Globe nominee Caitriona Balfe, Academy Award winner Judi Dench, Jamie Dornan, Ciaran Hinds, and introduces 10 year old Jude Hill. Dornan and Balfe play a passionate working-class couple caught up in the mayhem, with Dench and Hinds as sharp-witted grandparents.
