War Dance: an extraordinary film

Just seen War Dance - an extraordinary film - it was nominated at the 2008 Oscars in the Best Documentary category. Powerful, moving and had me in tears.

Civil war in Uganda has raged for over 20 years - this is a story of three children within the Patongo refugee camp of northern Uganda and the horrors of that war but also the joy that comes from discovering that their little school has qualified for the finals at the annual Kampala Music Festival.

See trailer and more about film here.
