WATCH [19 mins]: Popular African Actor Eddie Watson directs touching, informative Ebola Short film/Documentary

Ebola Documentary

Popular African Actor Eddie Watson recently released a very thought provoking and informative Documentary (See below) on the current Ebola virus which has been spreading like a plague, in parts of West Africa and there have also been three reported cases within the United States.

Watson says the aim of the production is to create awareness about the symptoms and impact of the highly communicable Ebola virus, and how its spread may be prevented.

Watson is the Director and Executive Producer of the film, and also plays the role of lead actor. Supporting actors include Yvonne Nelson, Sarkodie, Chase, Naomi Watson. The film shows how Ebola affected the everyday lives of two very close brothers, one brother (Eddie Watson) a supposed Corporate businessman.
PS. I love the fact that the film is directed by someone who is actually connected with the place of origin of this virus.

Watch below and PLEASE SHARE:[WARNING: The first two (2) minutes of the production is extremely graphic, showing actual images of persons suffering from Ebola. Start watching from 2:10 mins if you may find it offensive.
