Abstract:

"Filmed in northern Uganda, children of war is a unique and incandescent documentary which follows a group of former child soldiers as they undergo a process of trauma therapy and emotional healing while in a rehabilitation center. 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 indoctrination, and participation in war crimes with the help of a heroic team of counselors. As these fearless allies guide the children forward into new lives, Children of War illuminates a powerful and cathartic story of forgiveness and hope in the aftermath of war"--Container.
