VFS screening of Children of War

October 15, 2013 @ 7:15 pm - 10:00 pm

Children of War will screen on Tuesday October 15 at 7:15pm, at the VFS’s new state of the art location, 420 E. Santa Clara St. Tickets are $10 general, $7 for seniors and $5 for students. A powerful and cathartic story of forgiveness and hope in the aftermath of war, “Children of War” was filmed in the war-zone of northern Uganda over a period of three years by director Bryan Single. This unique documentary follows a group of former child soldiers as they escape the battlefield, enter a rehabilitation center, and undergo a process of trauma therapy and emotional healing. Having been abducted from their homes, the children struggle to confront and break through their years of captivity by the lord’s Resistance Army, a quasi-religious militia led by self-proclaimed prophet and war criminal Joseph Kony. Sponsored by Cynthia Loughman / Remax Gold Coast Realty. Filmmaker Ryan Single and Ugandan Child Counselor Jane Ekayu will attend. Click here to view the trailer.
