IAmA Ugandan independent filmmaker. I have been working with and documenting stories of people affected by Kony and the LRA since 2003. AMA
I am from Uganda and have worked as a television broadcaster for three years. I have been working as an independent video documentary filmmaker for 8 years. I started working with people affected by the Lord's Resistance Army in 2003 on a video documentary for World Vision Uganda called "Children of War". Since then I have dedicated myself to documenting the lives of Ugandan former girl soldiers with the LRA in an attempt to bring more awareness, healing and hope. Since Invisible Children and Kony have gotten so much attention lately, I thought that other people may want to hear another perspective.
