Los Angeles, CA, February 07, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- As Evil Does, a feature film written and directed by Yolanda Buggs, creatively tells the story of two young "Saints Witnesses" Christian evangelists on a friendly pursuit of conversation about religion and God, who unknowingly ring the doorbell of a staunch atheist. They are invited in for what they believe will be a friendly discussion and perhaps some soul healing. When the conversation about the existence of God takes a dark, sinister turn for the worse, all hell breaks loose, resulting in supernatural forces, mayhem and heinous torture.
The film stars veteran actor Bill Cobbs and rising star Dorian Missick, along with Holgie Forrester, Karl Sanders, Alycia Cooper, and Carsyn A. Rutland.
As Evil Does marks Bill Cobbs’ executive producing debut. The film is also produced by Andretta Hamilton, Dorian Missick and Wayne Overstreet. As Evil Does will be featured at the Pan African Film Festival, Saturday, February 10, 2018 at 6pm and again on Monday, February 12, 2018 at 1:20pm. The location is Cinemark Baldwin Hills Cinema 15 – 3650 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90008.
After screening As Evil Does, publicist, Tonya Carmouche states, "Audiences will leave the theater mesmerized while discussing the brilliant twist and turns that unfolds as the writer takes us on a journey through this realistic thriller."
There will be a Q&A session with the cast after the Saturday screening.
“No filmmaker is an island. Without the support of generous investors and donors, a talented cast and crew, completing an independent film would not be possible,” states Yolanda Buggs, film writer and director.
The film is being screened through the Pan African Film Festival (PAFF), a non-profit 501(c)(3) corporation dedicated to the promotion of cultural understanding among peoples of African descent. PAFF is dedicated to racial tolerance through the exhibition of film, art and creative expression.
