Children of War

(USA, 2010, 75 mins, Digital Betacam)
Special Guests: Director/producer Bryan Single will be Skyped in for a Q&A following the screening.


Filmed inside the war zone of northern Uganda over a period of three years, Children of War follows the story of a group of former child soldiers as they undergo a process of trauma therapy and emotional healing while in a rehabilitation centre.

Having been abducted from their homes and schools and forced to become fighters by the Lord’s Resistance Army - a quasi religious militia led by self-proclaimed prophet and war criminal Joseph Kony - the children struggle to confront and break through years of brutal abuse, extreme religious ideology, and participation in war crimes with the help of a heroic team of trauma counselors.
