The star – born Melanie Thandiwe Newton – rounded out her look with chunky black boots, a black quilted handbag and bright blue embellished earrings.

Thandiwe looked cheerful as she posed with Patricia Chinyoka, Chenayi, Rose Maponga and Olive Ruzvidzo during the screening.

The Camilla Nielsson-directed film focuses on Zimbabwean opposition leader Nelson Chamisa and his 2018 presidential bid following the ouster of Robert Mugabe from power.

Danny Glover is also executive producer of the award-winning 2021 Sundance documentary, while Signe Byrge Sørensen is producer.

Speaking of the film last year, Thandiwe told Variety, “Zimbabwe needs this film like a body needs oxygen. It has the potential to save lives, liberate the oppressed and uncover truths. There is no better goal for filmmaking than this.”

Elsewhere, Thandiwe previously revealed that she has turned down a role in a superhero movie, despite wanting to star in it.

While promoting her film Reminiscence in a September interview with LADBible, the actress said that despite turning down the other film, she is open to starring in the superhero genre.

‘I was offered a part by someone’s mother who just passed away. I was like, “Meh, no.” It was more the part, you know what I mean?’ said Newton.

While she didn’t know which superhero movie it was, she made it clear that she would be open to starring in a superhero movie in the future.

“I love what’s happening with these genres right now, where filmmakers are working on the genre,” Newton said.

She added that her “perfect example” of what she talked about is director Taika Waititi, who directed the 2017 superhero sequel Thor: Ragnarok.

“I love that the actors in it really want to push it too, of course they do – it’s boring otherwise, Jesus,” she added.
