Amnesty International Hosts Invisible Children Screenings

0
The film Invisible Children is a documentary made by three college students from California who traveled to Uganda in 2003 to “find a story.” What they found was a 22-year long war, currently the longest war in Africa, and the thousands of people that are afflicted by the brutality, torture, and sexual violence of the LRA (Lord’s Resistance Army). The film is called Invisible Children because the filmmakers believed the children who are forced to fight in a violent guerilla army were invisible to the United States. With the use of humor and real footage, this film has raised momentous amounts of awareness and even formed a non-profit organization out of high public response.
