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

Danny Glover also serves as executive producer on the Sundance 2021 award-winning documentary, while Signe Byrge Sørensen serves as 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 discover truths. There is no better purpose for filmmaking, than this.’

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

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

‘I was offered a role playing someone’s mum who just dies. I was like, “Meh, no.” It was more the role, you know what I mean?’ Newton said.

While she didn’t identify what superhero movie it was, she made it clear that she’d be open to starring in a superhero movie in the future.

‘I love what’s happening with these genres now, where filmmakers are f*****g with the genre,’ Newton said. 

She added that her ‘perfect example’ of what she was talking 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.
