Synopsis

A tense prison break thriller, Escape from Pretoria is the incredible true story of Tim Jenkin & Stephen Lee’s imprisonment and escape during South Africa’s apartheidera. Daniel Radcliffe stars as Tim Jenkin, a real-life ANC activist who, along with Stephen Lee, played by Daniel Webber (The Punisher, The Dirt), were branded terrorists, and imprisoned in South Africa’s maximum-security Pretoria prison - the white man’s Robben Island. With Lee and fellow freedom fighter Leonard, played by Mark Leonard Winter (The Dressmaker), Tim made a complex and daring escape 18 months into his incarceration using nothing but hand-crafted wooden keys. 11th December 2019 marked 40 years to the day since their audacious escape.


After the film we will be joined by Director Francis Annan for a Q&A.
