Mind Camp 2.0 Session: Invisible Children Screening




Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Sessions, Upcoming,

Invisible ChildrenEarlier today I was able to view a short version of the film Invisible Children, a documentary focusing on a story where children are the weapons - and the victims - in a 20-year-long war going on in Northern Uganda. The 35-minute short version of the film was eye-opening, informative, and sometimes heart-breaking. On April 29, Invisible Children is having a nationwide call to action, where people across the nation will be commuting to outdoor places in their communities for large slumber parties in the effort to raise awareness of the effect that this war is having on the children in Uganda. In fact, over 1,000 are expected to camp out at Green Lake here in Seattle.

Since we will be at Mind Camp on April 29, why not watch the documentary, and have a discussion afterward about it? Maybe brainstorm on ways we can help?

I am thinking of having on short session sometime during the afternoon on Saturday where attendees can view the 35-minute short version, and then screening the whole movie later on that evening, with discussion to follow.
