Zimbabwe’s Romance Film, Cook Off, Premiers On Netflix


A Zimbabwean romance movie titled: ‘Cook Off’, has premiered on streaming platform, Netflix.

Cook Off is about
a struggling single mother who finds love during a cooking competition.

Its premiering was on Monday, June 1, 2020, with the film making Zimbabwe to attract positive international media reportage from outlets like Reuters.

It is a low budget film, reportedly produced at a cost of about $8,000 in 2017.

The film has since 2017 won multiple awards at international film festivals, including in the Netherlands, Durban and United States.

With the premiering, the producers of Cook Off are expectant that it will propel Zimbabwe’s small film sector to global audiences.

The film was produced by Joe Njagu, who says it seeks to project a positive image of Zimbabwe internationally rather the usual reports of poverty, and political upheavals.

“I wanted the world to know that there is more to Zimbabwe than what they hear. We also fall in love, we also enjoy nice food. We also have very nice stories,” Njagu told the press.
