Lyandro Komakech from the Refugee Law Project (and MP for Gulu, Northern Uganda) discusses the rise of Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kony, in the 2016 documentary film A Brilliant Genocide.
The groundbreaking documentary is currently featuring in festivals across America and Europe and is planning a TV release later in the year, exposing untold stories about the war and western complicity that is shocking audiences worldwide.
A Brilliant Genocide examines the hidden history of the Ugandan regime of Yoweri Museveni. It lays bare the atrocities committed by Ugandan government soldiers against the Acholi people of Northern Uganda since 1986. The documentary is a counterpoint to 'Kony 2012', a viral video sensation which brought worldwide awareness to the crimes committed by the Lord’s Resistance Army under rebel leader Joseph Kony.
Utilising a substantial range of interviews from prominent Ugandan thinkers, opposition figures, activists, exiles and émigrés, A Brilliant Genocide presents an unmatched and uniquely Ugandan interpretation of Uganda’s recent history.
