Tonight TEN airs a documentary that has become a YouTube sensation.
The film by not-for-profit group Invisible Children aims to raise support for the arrest of Joseph Kony, Ugandan guerrilla group leader, and set a precedent for international justice.
However, there are also emerging questions about Invisible Children’s support of military intervention with news of a photograph of the group’s founders holding guns and posing with members of the Sudan People’s Liberation Army.
Kony 2012. These words have taken the world by storm in the past 24 hours. Tonight in a Project special, TEN brings viewers the 30 minute You Tube documentary that has spread via social media and been viewed close to 20 million times since it launched 2 days ago.
Charlie Pickering, Carrie Bickmore and The Gruen Transfer’s Todd Sampson will speak to former child soldier David Nyuol and Aaron Lewis, a journalist who has been on the hunt for Joseph Kony.
The documentary will screen as part of our program, commercial free.
The Project team will discuss the history of accused war criminal Joseph Kony and the campaign to bring him to justice through social media. The Project team will talk to Michael Wilkinson, critic of the not for profit organisation, Invisible Children, who fund this remarkable campaign.
8pm tonight on TEN.
