DUE to popular demand, LSK Heroes, the new Zambian movie depicting the ills of Gender Based Violence (GBV) runs again at fresh view cinema from of April 10, 2014.
This follows the response the Muvi Television production received during its premier last Friday in Lusaka.
Producer and writer Henry Joe Sakala says the overwhelming response towards the movies clearly shows that the Zambian people are ready for Zambian cinema and they are ready and willing to watch in their numbers,
“This is a multi-million Kwacha industry that can help in reducing the high levels of unemployment. The film industry can give jobs to many people who are skilled in other fields apart from film making and acting,” he says.
