Red Carpet dates include an after party attended by the cast.

    The US premier of Damage – The Movie, coincides with the US Domestic Violence Awareness Month and lends its’ voice to the International outcry against domestic violence. A portion of the movie proceeds will be donated to a non-profit organization that aids & educates victims of domestic violence. The Damage Movies, produced by Uche Jombo Studios, is a collection of three distinct but interwoven stories. Aimed at advocacy for social issues, each story addresses important problems affecting individuals, families and society at large.

    The movie which has also been nominated for the Birmingham Black International Film Festival – Nollywood awards has also seen the lead actress, Jombo nominated for the coveted Best Actress award. Damage also has 7 nominations at the BON awards. Damage will also be premiered in Ghana on November 5 and 6 after which it will open for at the Genesis Deluxe Cinemas across the country

    Speaking on the American premiere, the delectable lead actress cum producer, Uche Jombo said “ I am deeply overwhelmed by the support and love for the movie in the US. I am also grateful that the message in the movie is having the desired impact we set out to achieve and many more advocacy bodies are clamouring to partner with us with the aim of spreading the message to a wider audience round the globe. I am indeed honoured”

    Damage stars some of Africa’s best like Kalu Ikeagwu, Basorge Tariah, Tonto Dike and Uche Jombo and directed by hardworking and charismatic Moses Ewang.
