Forgotten Season: Screening - The Other Side of the Country

Conflict in Uganda: 'What do you do when war engulfs you and your government says there is no war?'

Wed 20th August, 7.30pm Price: £8.00
Followed by discussion

Uganda is the setting and the population is the battleground in Catherine Hebert’s carefully conceived film, which shows what it means to live through a war carried out by rebels and played down and drawn out by a complicit government.

Politically crisp and salient, the film captures the realities of war in northern Uganda through the interconnected stories of five people, including: a mother turned activist after her daughter’s abduction; a young girl travelling miles daily looking for a safe place to sleep; a 7 year old boy who moved onto the streets to survive; and an increasingly outspoken and courageous man whose job takes him to the heart of the war.

The Other Side of the Country is a powerful told through the voices of the people who suffered the most in Northern Uganda.

'A film as remarkable for its content as its form, turning the spotlight on a people's suffering and revealing the astonishing level of government inaction'
- La Cote, Switzerland
