FULLY BOOKED Screening – Kony: Hunt for the World’s Most Wanted
Join us for a preview of BBC Panorama‘s Kony: Hunt for the World’s Most Wanted, followed by a Q&A with reporter Sorious Samura, Ron McCullagh of Insight News TV and producer Andrew Bell.
Somewhere in the vast, dense jungles of central Africa is hidden Joseph Kony, one of the world’s most wanted men. For the past 25 years, Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army have waged one of the continent’s darkest conflicts; using an army of abducted and brutalised children to kill and maim tens of thousands of people.
But how has one man, said to take his orders from the spirit world, managed to escape capture for so long?
In the wake of the infamous “Kony 2012” internet campaign to bring him to justice this year, BAFTA-winning reporter Sorious Samura investigates the myths surrounding Kony and travels to the front line of the fight to bring one of Africa’s most bizarre and brutal leaders to justice.
