HARARE – New movie, Shaina, that recently aired on ZBCTV, is set to have an online launch this weekend.
It will show on YouTube this Friday at 8.30pm and have a re-screening on Saturday at the same time. Zimbabwean Communications Specialist, Patricia Mabviko said: “Zimbabweans from all walks of life who caught the ZBC TV screenings of Shaina were inspired and entertained by the beautifully crafted Zimbabwean movie.
“The Shaina team was inundated with requests for a re-screening on digital platforms by Zimbabweans who either missed the TV screening or would simply like to enjoy the movie once more with their loved ones.”
Shaina tells the story of a group of friends who face life-changing obstacles that mirror the day-to-day challenges encountered by ordinary people.
Their dreams and aspirations are put to the test and as they fight to overcome their circumstances.
They discover that there is power in believing in one’s self and in standing together. It’s a story about friendship, forgiveness and finding real power in girls supporting girls.
This captivating drama is a story about something Zimbabweans excel at – resilience – and the ultimate lesson is ingenuity in the face of tough challenges.
The movie prides itself in being one of the few to have a rare combination of a female director in Beautie Masvaure Alt and a female screenplay writer in Wanisai Chingwendere both of whom are Zimbabweans with outstanding experience working at home and abroad.
Shaina was made possible by the support from the American people through the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Zimbabwe.
