The Innocent is a collaboration of trust and discovery from the
vantage point of the children living in the war-torn region of northern
Uganda who are resilient enough to show their courage, strength of
will, and hope within the human spirit amidst conflict. The Acholi and
Luo tribes have been caught in the middle of a complex and barbaric
civil war for twenty-two years, in which countless numbers have been
brutalized, and abducted minors comprised almost 90% of the rebel
soldiers. It is estimated that as many as 66,000 children have been
abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army, wrenched from their
families and forced to become soldiers and sex slaves.
