South African producer and renowned actress Terry Pheto is about to hit the screens with her latest movie A United Kingdom.
Terry recently walked the red carpet in a beautiful multi-coloured gown at the premiere of her latest achievement in Botswana.
Scheduled to be released later in the year, the movie – A United Kingdom is plotted around the true story of the sweeping interracial love between the first president of Botswana, Sir Seretse Khama and the British woman he loved, Ruth Williams.

The film was Directed by Amma Asante (Belle) and written by Guy Hibbert (Eye In The Sky). It’s based on the book Colour Bar by Susan Williams.
Renowned actress Terry Pheto who is best known for her role in the Oscar-winning film Tsosti, stars alongside David Oyelowo and Rosemund Pike in the movie.
The film will be released in South Africa; Botswana plus East and West Africa on 9 December 2016.
