Editorial Reviews

War Child, an award-winning documentary directed by C. Karim Chrobog, chronicles the tumultuous, shocking, inspiring, and ultimately hopeful odyssey of Emmanuel Jal. A former child soldier of Sudan’s brutal civil war, he is now an emerging international hip hop star sharing a message of peace for his war-torn land and beloved Africa. WAR CHILD tells the story of Jal’s life through his words and music and remarkable film footage dating back to his childhood. Today, as Emmanuel travels the world he takes us through his homeland’s tormented history of civil war, assesses the prospects for peace after the country’s 2005 ceasefire agreement, highlights the increasing problem of war children, and shines light on the growing African hip hop scene that is tackling the continent’s ills through its music.

I first began listening to Emmanuel Jal's music a year ago and LOVE it! Couldn't wait for this dvd! I want the whole world to see it, so people understand what these wars do to our children. Excellent story.

This is an excellent documentary. It tells Jal's story honestly but without being too graphic to be shown in high schools. Jal's life story is interwoven with live performances of his music, and I found it very interesting. I would suggest reading Jal's autobiography, War Child, before viewing the documentary, but that's not a necessity; the book just provides additional background information.
