They will be joined by director Joe Njagu and Executive Producer Sylvia Chimhina. Released in October last year, the film has already won Njagu an award at the American International Film Festival for best “Best Director” in the foreign language category.

Movie critics have praised the producers for raising the standards of the Zimbabwean film industry and for making a truly Pan -African film – with a cast from Zimbabwe, South Africa and Malawi. Shot in full HD with stunning visuals by cinematographer Rufaro Kaseke, the film is set in Harare and Johannesburg.

A tale of twin brothers whose worlds have gone drastically wrong. As they reunite after eight years they get entangled in the unfamiliar worlds of Zimbabwe’s manipulative corporate darkness and south African Mafioso.

Tickets for the UK premiere at Prince Charles Cinema in London on March 24 at 5.30pm are available from www.thegentlemanthemovie.com
