Educate and Stimulate: Interactive Media Project

[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.

We share media and information about human rights in Uganda, democracy, resource wars, the 'Kony' war, peace, criminal and social justice and truth and reconciliation - that didn't make it to the final cut of our feature film.

We also share some sneak previews from the documentary. Our aim is to create discussion and promote dialogue about issues relating to human rights, justice, peace, conflict and democracy in Uganda and around the world.

Add your voice also - we want to hear from you! You can send us videos to post or just comment and get involved in the discussion sharing your views about the different issues we cover. If there is a particular topic you are interested in let us know by posting gin the shout box, and we will search our library and when possible we will upload content related to your request or area of interest.

Soon we will add some full interviews with people that were amazing but we simply filmed too much and interviewed too many people to be able to include them in the film.

We will also stream videos on our new website through our new educate and stimulate initiative to encourage people to look deeper into issues, beyond what one is fed by corporate media, leading you closer to the truth!

The current focus is on democracy in Uganda, which is quite timely given the fact that Uganda recently held fraudulent elections and the contested winner, Dr Kizza Besigye, is now in prison facing treason charges. Millions of his supporters refer to him as 'The people's President' and Besigye is also a key character in our film.
