Africa Part 2

Late next month we will be returning to Africa to complete filming for our documentary, Child Troopers, which has been three years in the making.

We will be spending most time in Uganda again, however are trying to get access into the DRC or South Sudan. It’s not going to be easy but we feel it is important to get closer to the war and current rebel activity.

Thanks to an amazing supporter and dear friend who is helping out financially, Sanne Kurz, an award winning cinematographer from Berlin, will be joining our team and shooting for us in East and Central Africa.

Wish us luck… Hopefully all goes well and we’ll be back in Australia or the US for post production around April/May!

Director of Child Troopers, Ebony Butler, will be traveling to Los Angeles next week where she will work with Child Trooper’s U.S Producer, Alec Pedersen (The Cove; Unity). She will then head across to New York and Washington DC to conduct interviews and further research issues related to the film.

Research for the upcoming trip to America will focus on children in conflict & child soldiers, peace & justice, civilian protection & security, aid & development, modern day child slavery & child trafficking.
