Invisible Children: Rough Cut is a documentary recorded in 2003 based on the experiences of three college students (Jason Russell, Bobby Bailey, and Laren Poole) in Northern Uganda. The filmers are from San Diego, California in the United States. They went to Uganda to see what they could film, and they found thousands of people affected by the insurgency of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). The resulting story focuses on the war’s effects on children, particularly child soldiers.

They found that thousands of children flee their homes nightly in order to escape being abducted. Children in Uganda are regularly abducted by the LRA to be trained as child soldiers. The children who run from their homes walk miles to find shelter in hospitals or bus parks – virtually anywhere far away from rebel camps.

We have a team of people who have worked with these kids comming to norfolk for two days and showing screenings of the movie and answering quesions.
