[May 8, 2016 Uganda] THE PEOPLE'S PRESIDENT, Dr. Kizza Besigye of the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) Uganda features in the groundbreaking feature documentary "A Brilliant Genocide". Besigye discusses Ugandan dictator Gen. Yoweri Museveni's 30 years of brutal repression with a military-style regime to entrench himself in power permanently.
Many people, including international observers, Kizza Besigye was the actually winner of the controversial 2006 and 2016 elections in Uganda, and is currently conducting a defiance campaign against the regime. Kizza Besigye is however currently under house arrest.
Uganda's President Gen. Museveni plans a swear-in May 12, 2016. Besigye has demanded an audit of the votes and calls Museveni "illegitimate." Watch this space and the political climate in Uganda heats up with the people finally standing up to the regime despite the potential dangers involved.
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.
