When you think about where violent acts against humanity are taking place in the world, do you think of Uganda? If not then know this- during the past 23 years a war has been occurring in this country between two groups of people: the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the Government of Uganda (GoU).

A 23-year-long war. Millions of people dead. Thousands of children being kidnapped and taken to be forced into becoming child soldiers. Children afraid to sleep in their own homes. No jobs and no food.
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.
