Hero lands on Amazon Prime and Cineplex

Trinidadian movie Hero is now available for streaming in Canada on Premium VOD in the Cineplex Store, Prime Video in the United States and Prime Video UK.

The film is an adaptation of the true-life story of Trinidadian airman, lawyer and diplomat Ulric Cross, a legal professional who worked with some of Africa’s most charismatic leaders during the thrilling but turbulent formative years of independence. Hero has received tremendously positive reviews at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Canada. Before the Covid-19 pandemic, it played in UK cinemas on a 40-city tour that covered England, Scotland and Wales.

The film’s international cast includes Trinidad’s Nickolai Salcedo in the title role, Peter Williams (Stargate SG1), Joseph Marcell (Fresh Prince of Bel-Air), Jimmy Akinbola (Holby City) and Ghanaian superstars John Dumelo, Adjetey Anang and Prince David Osei.

Produced by Frances-Anne Solomon, the movie has won multiple awards including, the 2019 Africa Movie Academy Award for Best Diaspora Narrative Feature Film category. It was also selected as the opening night feature film for the Pan African Film Festival in Los Angeles.
