Niven Govinden & Gareth Evans: Diary of a Film

Niven Govinden’s sixth novel Diary of a Film (Dialogue) follows an unnamed director through the streets of an Italian town as he muses on cinema, queer love and the creative process; on its hardback publication, during first lockdown, the Financial Times described it as ‘a wise and skilfully controlled novel, which can be read in an afternoon, but which radiates in the mind for much longer.’

To celebrate the novel’s release in paperback, Govinden was in conversation with Gareth Evans, the Whitechapel Art Gallery’s Moving Image curator.
