Documentary "Invisible Children" will be shown at Gavilan College

WHO: All are invited. Groups are welcome.
WHAT: Invisible Children is a film documenting the effects of a rebel group in Africa's northern Uganda called the Lord's Resistance Army. For the past 18 years the LRA has forcefully and brutally abducted children from their homes. The film chronicles three naive journalists as they discover thousands of children sleeping in the streets to avoid abduction. The story unfolds as the filmmakers try to understand why these children run for their lives each night, and who is responsible for this atrocity.

The screening will be followed by a discussion with the filmmakers, who have been screening their documentary at various locations around the state. They hope to return to Uganda to continue documenting the children of the Lord's Resistance Army.

WHEN: November 30, 2004 at 2 p.m. and at 7 p.m.

WHERE: Gavilan College main campus, Social Sciences Building, Room 214; 5055 Santa Teresa Blvd., Gilroy

DETAILS: This event is free and open to the public. Anthropology Instructor Kristin Cheney was instrumental in inviting the filmmakers to bring this project to Gavilan College. To view a trailer, read biographies of the filmmakers, and for more information, go to www.invisiblechildren.com.
