Elvis Chuks’ next production comes in the wake of recent rape incidents across the country. In a bold step aimed at raising awareness, Elvis is set to release a new movie titled ‘Victims of the Society’.
“This movie is intended to educate people on the ills that the children and the society face when such things like child neglect, child abuse and infringement upon the rights of children, educationally and socially, continue, of which these acts are still in practice even till date. You can see these happening mostly in African countries, and of course, other continents of the world, especially with the black children, who are the future hope of this great continent of Africa,” the movie promo reads.
The movie was shot in Lagos and South Africa and it features prominent Nollywood stars, Joke Silva, Patience Ozokwo, Alex Osifo, Daddy Fresh, Cossy Orjiakor and international actress, Xolile Tshabala, who has featured in Jacob’s Cross, Generation S and CSI Miami0, amongst others.
In Elvis’ words, “Children are the leaders of tomorrow, what we put into them is what we get from the. We need to be careful how we treat them; most adults misbehaving today are products of yesterday’s abuse. So, if we don’t want a damaged tomorrow, let’s not damage the leaders of tomorrow.”
The movie will be premiered on the Universal Children’s Day, November 20 in Lagos.
