Editorial Reviews

From the director of The Devil s Miner, this acclaimed documentary charts the incredible journey of Uganda-born world champion boxer, Kassim The Dream Ouma. At age six, he was kidnapped by the rebel army and forced to be a child soldier. But Ouma found his ticket to freedom after discovering the army s boxing team and defected to the U.S. in 1998, after more than a decade of warfare. Overcoming homelessness and severe culture shock, Ouma gradually rose through the ranks of the sport to become Junior Middleweight Champion of the World. Having achieved the American Dream but still battling his childhood demons, Ouma s greatest wish is to return to Uganda and his family. Filmmaker Kief Davidson skillfully captures this haunted, extraordinarily complex young fighter during a pivotal time in his life as he seeks a pardon from the government that nearly destroyed his life.

Well done. Extremely well done. I was actually at this fight and several of the prefight events leading up to the fight in Little Rock, December 9, 2006. Didn't realize a doc was being filmed around it. (Fantastic filmmaking.) It was super painful to watch this fight in person without really knowing what was on the line for Kassim, championship aside. It's even more devastating after watching this documentary. Kassim's just so loving and lovable. And yes I understand that he has a dark side most will never see. But most weren't kidnapped as a kid and then forced to kill people either. I adore Kassim and hope he's still rediscovering freedom and laughter...a boy's laughter...his own.

What Kassim lived through was horrific. This is a wonderful documentary explaining to the world what these child soldiers do to survive. Seeing him break down near the end is heart wrenching.
