Lovemore Meya Arts Correspondent
Film lovers and enthusiasts wishing to make it big in the industry will today learn a lot from filmmakers when they converge at Pamberi Garden Trust for a free screening of a Zimbabwean film, “Sour Milk”.

The film, which was co-written by Melgin Tafirenyika and Nigerian scriptwriter Anderline-Gold Ergbuhuzor, tackles topical issues affecting relationships and marriages.

Directed by Myre Chris Maramba and produced by Tafirenyika, the film features actors from Nigeria, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

After the screening, a question-and-answer session will follow before the gathering engages in a discussion about films and filmmaking.

The film which premièred last year in Harare has been recently released on DVD.

Speaking ahead of the event, the project coordinator Rudo Chakanyuka called upon everyone to come and support the initiative.

“We are inviting film lovers and those aspiring to be filmmakers to come and attend this fruitful screening and discussion session,” said Rudo.

“The Wednesday Film Club is a weekly film screening platform where we showcase the work of various filmmakers.

“The platform also allows the audience to interact with the filmmakers, give feedback, and hold frank and candid discussions about the films and other film-related topics.

“’Sour Milk’ has just been released on DVD, so this screening is an opportunity for the filmmaker to market the DVD using this free platform.”

Rudo said it will be everyone’s chance to meet and interact with the filmmaker.

Wednesday film screening is a Pamberi Trust project and platform for promoting emerging filmmakers in the country.
