War Child

“War Child”, by Karim Chrobog

Screened on 24 September 2008

Runtime: 92′

This feature-length documentary film chronicles the tumultuous, shocking, inspiring, and ultimately hopeful life of Emmanuel Jal, a former child soldier in Sudan’s brutal civil war and emerging international hip-hop star with a message of peace for his war-torn land and beloved Africa. Jal’s life story, in many ways, mirrors his homeland: tragedy and terror mingling with hope and restoration.

The film was followed by a discussion with UNICEF Programme Advisor in Brussels, Sylvie Fouet, focal point for children’s issues in humanitarian action and post crisis transition situations.
