War Child – the film


Here’s an email I received from the Brotherhood of St Lawrence, disclosing an event that I’d like to go to, but won’t be able to. But some Troppodillian may wish to go.

‘War Child’ film tells the story of Emmanuel Jal: a child of war in Sudan, a boy soldier, a survivor, a refugee. Follow Jal’s extraordinary journey as he finds the courage to overcome adversity and rises to become an international musical artist.

This Emmy-nominated, feature-length documentary intersperses original interviews, live concerts, and rare footage of Jal as a seven year-old boy. ‘War Child’ will make you cry, laugh, dance and celebrate the power of hope. See why audiences from New York, Berlin and London have raved about this award-winning film.
