Uganda Rising Feature Documentary Trailer
Peter Quaranto, DIRECTOR, UgandaCAN
"More than any film to date, Uganda Rising provides a nuanced and sophisticated look at the history and dynamics of the 20-year war in northern Uganda. With key and diverse interviews, it helps us to see the big picture without losing sight of the individual stories of children that have been victimized by this conflict. I applaud it's producers and hope this film may help the growing international movement for peace in northern Uganda to wake up the world to this neglected crisis."

"In everyday life it's often easy to forget that there are parts of the world where people live in utter turmoil. Enter Uganda Rising to remind us...The directors illuminate the need to understand the country's rich and complicated history in order to fully comprehend present day politics. The film also pushes comfort level boundaries with its horrifically graphic scenes... Many social and political documentaries offer no positive hope for the future, but this isn't the case with Uganda Rising. It places hope and optimism in the Acholi children who only know war but strive to overcome it by supporting their families and educating themselves; something we can all learn from."
