This is a compelling documentary about the Acholi tribe in northern Uganda. They live in the refugee camp of Patongo. The camp is under military protection from the Lord’s Resistance Army, rebel terrorists that have been battling against the government for the past two decades. They have lost their ancestral homes, many children are left orphaned and/or forced to become ruthless soldiers.
In 2005, the camp’s primary school won its regional music competition and headed to Kampala to participate in the annual National Music Competition. This film shows how music and dance brings the Acholi tribe happiness, even through all their pain and suffering. Its the one thing that gets them by.
No matter what, music will always be there for you.
