Invisible Children: THE RESCUE
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Gregory Jordan.
Invisible Children is a media-based non-profit organisation advocating for the rights of war-affected children in Northern Uganda. The charity began in 2003 when three student film-makers from San Diego went to Uganda in search of a story to document. They found an unseen war and the children fighting it, ‘unseen’ because it has been given so little political and international attention; a war that most people don’t even know exists. Not only are children being abducted from their families to join the rebel army the fighting has displaced over a million people in Northern Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo and massacred thousands.
THE RESCUE is a film on the growing crisis of child soldiering in the civil war between the LRA (Lords Resistance Army) and the Ugandan Government. The war has been going on for over 23 years, which makes it the longest running war in Africa. A shocking 90% of the rebel LRA are children, some are as young as 5 years old.
