Uche Jombo has unveiled her plans to take her new movie, Damage, on a US tour. October is regarded as domestic violence month in the US and she has decided to be part of the awareness campaign. The movie which has already been successfully premiered in Lagos and London will be shown in New York on the 7th of October before moving to Kentucky eight days later and then to Atlanta on the 21st. The tickets are already on sale online at www.damagemovietickets.com.
The other places the movie will be showing include Staten Island, NY, 120 Clinton Ave on Friday 7 October and at the Minneapolis, MN, Brookdale Cinema 8 the following day. On Sunday, 10 October it will show at Houston, TX, Fun Asia Bollywood Cinema 6.
“It is just a way of spreading the message against domestic violence, because if we look at it, it is truly a global problem,” Uche explained. “Also, apart from the showing of the movie in the United States, there would also be the sale of merchandise which would further spread the message to stop domestic violence. This will not only raise awareness to domestic violence, but would also serve as a means of raising funds which would be contributed toward the course.”
Damage is a movie that deals extensively with the topic of domestic violence and was produced by Uche Jombo. She also starred in the movie alongside Tonto Dike, Basorge Tariah Jr and Kalu Ikeagwu.
