Movie Info

Filmmaker Neil Abramson chronicles the plight of children in war-torn northern Uganda in this compelling documentary. Chronicling the savagery and horror that thousands of children endure as they are forced from their homes to serve in the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), Soldier Child weaves a gripping tale of torture, rape, starvation, and brainwashing. Through black and white photos and on-camera interviews, the events at GUSCO--the rehabilitation facility for those fortunate enough to have escaped their captors--come to life. You'll see selected stories of the victims of brutality, including poignant footage of a young boy whose feet are so infected from marching in the army that he can no longer walk and a teen-aged girl who has given birth as the result of being raped by LRA soldiers.
