Following his acclaimed acting debut in Beasts of No Nation, Abraham Attah has been cast in another movie titled Out of the Village.
Told from the point of view of an orphaned boy (Abraham Attah) and his sister, the movie deals with the social and cultural impact of the Ebola pandemic that struck West Africa in 2014.
Though the movie has yet to hit the market, it has already won two awards — Best International Short Film at the 2015 Foyle Film Festival and Best International Film at the 2015 Show Me Shorts Film Festival.
The film was shot in various locations in West Africa. It was produced by American film director, producer, writer and actor Bryan Singer of X-Men fame.
