Invisible Children Screening

Invisible ChildrenInvisible Children Documentary screening on March 19, 6:30 at the Watertown Free Public Library

The Invisible Children project began with three young filmmakers traveling to Africa. While they were there, they learned of a tragic situation in Uganda where children were being abducted from their homes and forced to fight a civil war. These young men documented the story of children who became “night commuters” in order to avoid abduction. When the filmmakers returned to America they began an ambitious program designed to improve the quality of life for children who have been affected by war.

Last year Watertown High school students including members of the Library’s Teen Advisory Board took on the project to help bring funding to schools in Uganda. At this screening Lydia Mutagubya, will be introduced, a young woman from Uganda who has been involved with the Invisible Children project and the Watertown Schools. Along with her will be Ssendagire Stephen, the principal of the Bright Future Child Ministries, who will be sharing his schools’ situation which involves many orphaned children.
