Dreamcoat Productions, a British film production company behind popular South African actress, Terry Pheto’s much-anticipated British film dubbed “Faces” has invited Motswana actor, Donald Molosi to attend the world premiere of the film in Durban next month (July). Dreamcoat Productions intends to use events around the premiering of “Faces” to finalize details about their next yet-untitled film which will feature Molosi alongside heavyweights of both Hollywood and British cinema.
It is understood that Molosi is already on board the yet-untitled film as a co-star and is now lobbying for the international film to include Botswana as one of its filming locations.These talks will take place in Durban, and hopefully they will give Molosi the last shot at swaying the decision in favor of Botswana as the set for his next international film. Whether Botswana is selected as the location or not, one thing is for certain, Molosi’s role in the yet-untitled film will mark the first time that a Motswana actor featured prominently in mainstream British film.
Molosi most recently appeared in A United Kingdom (2017) opposite Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike and Emmy nominee David Oyelowo. Molosi has won numerous acting and writing awards off-Broadway over the past decade most notably for his magnum opus “Blue, Black and White” which this year marks its tenth (10th) anniversary on the off-Broadway circuit in New York City.
In honor of its South African lead actress, the world premiere of “Faces” next month will be held at the Durban International Film Festival where #UnpluggedBWTV director, Tumi Sejoe has also been chosen to grace the coveted festival. Molosi is expected to attend the Durban festival with a delegation of a few Botswana creatives.
