What if you had been a child soldier?
Academy Award winning film War Witch will be screened at Kino Cinema Melbourne on the 16th of June to raise awareness about the plight of children in Sudan during refugee week. The event is being held by Peace Palette.
War Witch tells the personal story of a 12 year old girl who becomes a child soldier in her war torn homeland. The film will be followed by the personal story of David Nyuol Vincent who was a child soldier and refugee before founding Peace Palette in Melbourne.
