Documentaries

Yes, I do watch a lots of documentaries. So, I thought it would be good idea to share my views on those with everyone. Whenever I will see new documentary, I’ll add here. So, keep yourself glued to this section, if you are documentary freak (just like me)!

Invisible Children

Invisible Children

 

Invisible Children is a documentary about the lives of children of Northern Uganda.

Even at this moment, in Uganda, Children as young as 8 are methodically kidnapped from their homes by a rebel group called the “Lord’s Resistance Army” (LRA). The abducted children are then desensitized to the horror of brutal violence and killing, as they themselves are turned into vicious fighters. Some escape and hide in constant fear for their lives. Most remain captive, and grow to maturity with no education other than life “in the bush” and fighting in a guerilla war. (Excerpt from the website Invisible Children) I’m sure everyone will be moved after watching this documentary.
