Lyandro Komakech from the Refugee Law Project discussing the rise of Ugandan rebel leader Joseph Kony, in the 2016 documentary film A Brilliant Genocide.
The film is currently featuring in festivals across America and Europe and is planning a TV release later in the year, exposing groundbreaking, untold stories about the war that is shocking audiences around the world.
The documentary 'A Brilliant Genocide' examines the hidden history of the Ugandan regime under dictator Yoweri Museveni and is a counterpoint to Kony 2012, a viral video sensation with over 100 millions views, that brought worldwide awareness to the crimes committed by the Lord's Resistance Army under rebel leader Joseph Kony. The viral video however failed to show the other side of the conflict, and placed all blame on Kony, who is now the most wanted man in Africa and one of the world's most wanted men.
'A Brilliant Genocide' demonstrates how the Museveni regime has used Kony as a straw man, enabling the Ugandan government to further establish its control over northern Uganda and garner international sympathy and support. The documentary utilizes a substantial range of interviews from prominent Ugandan thinkers, opposition figures, activists, exiles and émigrés, presenting an unmatched and uniquely Ugandan interpretation of Uganda's recent history.
