Veteran screen actress, Uche Jombo, has decided to take her message against domestic violence to another level, with plans to take her movie Damage on a tour across the United States of America as part of the awareness against domestic violence in the month regarded as domestic violence month in the United States.
Damage which has already had a spectacular premiere in Lagos and London, is set to arrive in New York on the October 7th, Kentucky on October 15th, Houston, Atlanta on the 21st of October and in Philadelphia. Already tickets for the event are already on sale online at www.damagemovietickets.com.

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.
Uche Jombo who is the producer of the movie, also acted in the movie alongside some of Nollywood’s best like Tonto Dike, Basorge Tariah Jr and Kalu Ikeagwu.
The movie ‘Damage’ presents the case of love and domestic violence in such a manner that has never been seen in Nollywood. ‘Damage’ is about the story of a man (Kalu Ikeagwu) and his wife (Uche Jombo) who loves each other immensely, but their communication channel is flawed as there is always one thing or the other to fight about, and this has a serious psychological effect on their children and led to irreplaceable loss.
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.
