Damage Movie On US Tour

Domestic violence month in the United States is October is and it is during this month that Nollywood actress and now producer, Uche Jombo, has chosen to take her message against domestic violence to another level, with the tour of her movie Damage across the United States of America. Uche Jombo produced the movie the movie and is acting alongside some of Nollywood’s best, like Tonto Dikeh, Basorge Tariah Jr and Kalu Ikeagwu.

The movie Damage presents the case of love and domestic violence in a way that has never been seen before in Nollywood. The movie stars Uche Jombo and Kalu Ikeagwu as a married couple in an abusive relationship and looks at the psychological effects that domestic violence has, especially on the children of such a union. A man and his wife love each other immensely yet their day to day life can only be described as a “cat and mouse” situation as they fight violently almost on a daily basis.

See the DAMAGE trailer below:

The movie is the first of a collection of three movies with distinct yet interwoven stories called The Damage Movies. The second is My Life, My Damage dealing with the consequences of drug abuse and HIV/AIDS and the third My Country, Their Damage deals with the issue of human trafficking.

When asked how she felt about her work, Uche Jombo stated,

“I am very proud of what we have achieved, there is no better word to describe how I feel when I see the turnout of people coming to watch the movie and am sure that all those involved in the production of the film would definitely feel the same way.”

When asked about her decision to take her movie on a tour in the United States, Uche said,

“It is just a way of spreading the message against domestic violence, because if we look at it, it is truly a global problem. 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.”
