|MAC sponsors Uganda film; faculty can invite speakers to classes|
In the spring of 2003, three young filmmakers traveled to Africa in search of a story. What started out as a filmmaking adventure transformed into much more when these boys from Southern California discovered a conflict that disgusted and inspired them -- a conflict where children are both the weapons and the victims. After returning to the States, they created the documentary, "Invisible Children: Rough Cut," a film that exposes the realities of northern Uganda's night commuters and child soldiers.
The film was originally shown to friends and family, but has now been seen by millions of people. The overwhelming response has been, "How can I help?" To answer this question, the non-profit Invisible Children, Inc. was created, giving individuals an effective way to respond to the situation.
"Roadies" from the Invisible Children organization will bring the film to UND and answering questions throughout the day as it plays in the Loading Dock Tuesday, March 31. This is a Multicultural Awareness Committee event; as a committee, they decided to contact professors to see if any of them hold any interest in the roadies visiting their classroom. If so, please contact Chelsea Stone at email@example.com . -- Multicultural Awareness Committee.
