I cried my way through this movie/documentary. “We are Acholi.”
// when the girl falls on the grave of her father and bursts out in tears “I wann lie with daddy.” I lost it completely. Wonders if anyone has seen it.
I was touched greatly by this too. I have been avoiding facing the facts about northern Uganda as it’s my country and the feeling of guilt is overwhelming.I was also very very sad when Dominic who kept talking about his brother got smartly dressed and walked to the army barracks to inquire from a recently captured rebel if his brother was still alive. The rebel just told him that no he is dead we had orders to kill him. The little boy asks him why do rebels kidnap young children when they know it’s bad.I cried through the whole film. Must watch. If your in Ugandan, or your a Ugandan, or an African. I think this is one of the best films ever!

I have a skype interview with this lovely woman in the coming week with the hopes of securing an opportunity to work with the Oakland Institute. Wish me luck. I’m going to need if it I’m going to come even close to matching this woman’s passion and brilliance.
Good luck it sounds like an awesome place to work!
