SA leading lady Terry Pheto's British film FACES will have its world premiere at the 39th Durban International Film Festival (DIFF) on Sunday.

Pheto leads the ensemble cast of the drama helmed by British-Nigerian director Joseph A. Adesunloye.

The film had principal photography in London between April and July last year.

The movie's English supporting cast includes actor Aki Omoshaybi, who recently starred in Star Wars: The Last Jedi as well as Coronation Street actress Suzette Llewellyn.

The storyline follows four characters as their lives begin to unravel. Playing the role of Aisha, Pheto takes centre-stage in the film's newly unveiled poster.

"Having the FACES world premiere on my home turf is truly special," Pheto expressed her excitement in a statement.

"It's always great to work with incredible actors and talented filmmakers from all parts of the world."

DIFF runs from Thursday until July 29.
