Catherine Hébert / Canada / 2007 / 83 min

The film is about the northern part of Uganda, which is split by the Nile. Whilst the subject is about the Lord’s Resistance Army and should therefore be interesting and enlightening, the director managed to make this film incredibly boring. Everything just takes too long – the titling, the interviews, … . There is no focus on a particular character, there does not seem to be any structure and the director just tries to be too objective for the viewer to get involved.
