"Restore Gulu: Child Soldier No More" documents the powerful story of restoration and hope in a community ravaged by an unthinkable war on children and the journey of healing and forgiveness that must take place to rebuild a community.
Immediately following the film, the globally renowned Watoto Children’s Choir comprised of former orphans ages 6 to 15 years old, on tour from Uganda, Africa will appear live to perform their newest Broadway style song and dance production "Beautiful Africa: A New Generation".
The Watoto Children’s Choir recently gained worldwide attention by performing for the Queen of England at Buckingham Palace and also for the President at the White House.
A V.I.P reception and meet and greet with the Watoto Children’s Choir will be held at 4:00pm.
All proceeds will go to benefit the continued rescue of orphans and vulnerable women in Africa as well as the local film community.
