HERO the movie UK Cinema Release opens 22nd June 2019

HERO, inspired by the extraordinary life and times of Trinidadian war hero,
Ulric Cross, opens in the UK at Picture House Ritzy, Brixton on 22nd June 2019 with a limited run across London cinemas. The biopic which is produced and directed by Frances-Anne Solomon,  had its UK premiere at the BFI Southbank on 18 May.
MP Dianne Abbott who was amongst the VIP and celebrity guests who attended the screening described it as “a revelation” and said that she’d learned so much more about the work Cross did, especially in Africa.

“The film is beyond the life of Ulric Cross, but ultimately, it is about us, about who we are as  Caribbean people and citizens of the world.” said Solomon.

With an international cast the film features some well known British actors including  Joseph Marcell  (Fresh Prince of Bel Air), playing the role of writer CLR James;  Fraser James, playing the role of George Padmore and British-Nigerian actor Jimmy Akingbola (Holby City), playing Ghana’s first president Kwame Nkrumah. HERO will also form an integral part of the 71st Windrush celebrations in London.
