INVISIBLE CHILDREN PRESENTS: EMMY: THE STORY OF AN ORPHAN (USA, 2006, 18 min.)
Ditching school to go fishing, Emmy is Uganda’s Huckleberry Finn. He is the fourth of five children, none from the same father; each father was killed by a different aspect of the Lord Resistance Army’s reign of terror over northern Uganda. The wounds of war are not always inflicted by bullets and the killers are not always the soldiers. This is the story of a family made from those who remain. Directed by Bobby Bailey.
Shown as part of the program Selections from 2007 MOUNTAINFILM in Telluride, along with RIDE OF THE MERGANSERS, PAPA TORTUGA, COAST TO COAST, TITANS OF THE CORAL SEA, VOYAGE TO 109 METERS, LONGFIN, GIMME GREEN, and BUILDING THE FUTURE – ENERGY.
