The Ghanaian film “EVOR” has achieved a significant milestone by securing an Official Selection at The African Film Festival (TAFF) 2024 in Texas.
The announcement was made by actress-turned-producer Sitsofe Tsikor, marking the debut production under her company Rainbow Productions.
Sitsofe Tsikor shared the exciting news on social media, posting an updated poster for “EVOR” adorned with the festival laurel. The caption read, “We woke up to such good news #evor.”
“EVOR” delves into the sensitive topic of domestic abuse and narrates the story of Dela, facing a potential 20-year prison sentence for the death of her partner, Kojo.
The film explores Dela's journey as she confronts her past trauma, exposing the tragic cycle of abuse and societal indifference.
The title “EVOR” is derived from the Ewe language, translating to “It is Finished,” symbolizing the emphatic end of a significant situation.
In an earlier interview with GhMoviefreak.com, Sitsofe expressed, “EVOR is a work of art that we have put our hearts and backs into. We have made a film that would go a long way to change people's thoughts, and we can't wait for you all to see it.”
The ensemble cast of “EVOR” includes talented Ghanaian actors such as Adjetey Anang, Brian Angels, Fred Amugi, Pascaline Edwards, Abeiku Santana, Myna Otoo, Naa Ashokor Mensah-Doku, among others. The film is set to premiere at Silverbird Cinemas on Wednesday, March 6, 2024.
Further details regarding tickets and showtimes for the premiere will be announced soon. TAFF, celebrating its 9th year, focuses on films and arts promoting African culture and addressing issues affecting Africa and people of African descent.
The 2024 edition of TAFF is scheduled to take place in Dallas, Texas, from June 20th to June 23rd.
