In the spring of 2003, three young Americans traveled to Africa in search of such as story. What they found was a tragedy that disgusted and inspired them. A story where children are weapons and children are the victims. The “Invisible Children: rough cut” film exposes the effects of a 20 year-long war on the children of Northern Uganda. These children live in fear of abduction by rebel soldiers, and are being forced to fight as a part of violent army. This wonderfully reckless documentary is fast paced, with an MTV beat, and is something truly unique. To see Africa through young eyes is humorous and heart breaking, quick and informative – all in the very same breath. See this film, you will be forever changed.

  2. About 11 months ago I stopped by a cvs to pick up some stuff because I was going out to dinner with friends that night. I decided to pick up a style magazine to get some ideas on what to wear that night. What I found was a story on the night commuters of gulu. Having grown up in uganda for the first 14 years of my life I could not believe that I knew nothing about gulu and was finding out for the first time. I cried and wondered what I could do to help because I was already working on another project http://www.myspace.com/nazarethkids which is an orphanage home of 23 in Masaka Uganda.

    I moved to west palm beach to get away but while there I wanted to know more about that story I had read and so I started my research and ran into your website through google.

    I want you to know that I am opening up an organization (oneopeneye) and it’s main focus will be gulu. Since opening up my myspace site I have had alot of people ask to know more about gulu, have posted my site as one of their top friends, posted gulu videos on their sites etc. Awareness, the word is getting around.

    I teamed up with a musician in Georgia and together in just two months we have been able to compose a song for gulu that we will post on the site around the begining of next month. Please keep the link to http://www.oneopeneye.org because you will love what we have done through music and poetry to help spread Awareness.

    We have planned a concert in Kampala around December with blood brothers, Abramz and Slyvester, Swampkamp, kidfox and my project partner Chris. I can’t wait to come to Uganda and use my talents to benefit the people in gulu and I hope that we can call on invisible children to be of help as far as spreading awareness with the concert in december.

  3. Isn’t that the truth, Dave. This is a difficult film to watch, in fact I’ve only watched the first half and had to take a break from it. I’ll watch the rest later.
