...the power of theater to connect human beings from different worlds is vividly revealed. --Juliet Sherwood, Women + Film

unique and compelling. --Beth Hegedus, Examiner.com

Product Description

In English and Luo with English subtitles

AFTER KONY: STAGING HOPE follows a team of actors, playwrights, and activists who use theater to help Ugandan teens share their story of resilience through a childhood filled with terror caused by Joseph Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army. Many of the teens were former child soldiers or sex slaves that escaped from their Lord's Resistance Army abductors. By dramatizing their stories, the teens are able to explore their traumatic past, as well as share their voices with the community and the world. The result is an epic play that reveals the vulnerable moments and powerful bonds that connect all of us as humans, no matter where we live or what we have gone through.

4.0 out of 5 stars A unique film. April 14, 2014
Format:DVD
Talk about a film that has its heart in the right place! There is much to admire about AFTER KONY: STAGING HOPE, as well as the individuals who comprise the Voices of Uganda drama team and the filmmakers, that it almost seems unfair to mention any perceived flaws in the final product. So while it must be said this is not a perfect film, it is ultimately very inspirational and a unique testimony to the healing power of drama.

Before one gets to the film, however, it is helpful to remember that 2012 was the year to get Joseph Kony. Following a life-changing experience, American activist and filmmaker Jason Russell produced a short film exposing Kony’s diabolical career called “Kony 2012″ which became an Internet sensation. Russell’s goal was to make Kony so famous that the world simply had no excuse to not go after him and stop his horrible regime. Along the way, Russell had a well-documented breakdown, proof of the toll this obsession to stop Kony has taken. Though Kony has cut and run from Uganda he is purportedly still active in places like the Sudan and the Congo. While it is hoped that he will soon be captured and tried for his crimes against humanity, it hasn’t happened yet, which makes the story of AFTER KONY: STAGING HOPE, all the more poignant.

Back to the film. Actress Melissa Fitzgerald, who also co-produced AFTER KONY: STAGING HOPE, is an ebullient and sincere leader of the Voices of Uganda team that travels to the historically-troubled African country to work with 14 teens in an Internally Displaced Persons camp in Northern Uganda.
