Josephy Kony has now been made famous. While many have qualms with the organization that produced “Kony 2012,” or the footage used in the documentary, nobody contests to Kony’s guilt. SOLDIER CHILD is an excellent documentary that goes into a lot more depth about the whole issue. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.
Since the early 1990’s, North Uganda has seen a wave of terror never-ending. Tens of thousands of children have been taken from their homes, forced to walk to Sudan, raped, murdered, or trained to join a rebel army. The leader of the army is religious fanatic Joseph Kony. The documentary SOLDIER CHILD documents the brainwashing that occurs to these young children. A final act of brainwashing usually involves the child being forced to cross a moral line that they will never be able to undo: this can involve the murder of their own family members.
A truly devastating story.
As far as I can see this documentary is from 1998, so it’s far from an accurate updated account of the situation.
Far more informative tho than the kony 2012 promo video. :)
