Movie Screening and Fundraiser for ‘Resolve Uganda’

I wanted to post about another event coming up near the end of September.  There will be a screening for the independent film “War Dance“, which is about the war torn children of Northern Uganda.  You can check out the preview of the film at: http://www.wardancethemovie.com.

The screening will also be a fundraiser for Resolve Uganda , an organization that works with Invisible Children to help to raise more awareness and make legitimate strides in putting an end to the 22 year long war in Northern Uganda, where young children are abducted and forced to become part of a brutal army by being indoctrinated to become killers.  They are often forced to watch brutal murders or even participate in them until they become desensitized to it, and therefore think nothing of it.  It is a pretty sick deal and has been going on for 22 years now, much of which went completely unnoticed by the rest of the world until the creators of Invisible Children stumbled upon the story about 4 years ago and made gave it global press.  

The screening and fundraiser will be held at The Q Cafe in Seattle, on September 24th, from 7pm-9pm.  There will be a suggested donation of $5 to attend.  The movie, War Dance looks like a must see, and it has one numerous independent film awards, as you can see by checking out the website.

So if you are in the Seattle area at that time, i hope you can make it to the screening and help to gain more understanding and knowledge about the war-torn children of Northern Uganda.  thanks!
