War Child

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

This has nothing to do with Brooklyn or my house, but I wanted to take a minute to encourage anyone reading to go see the documentary film War Child, which made its premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on Monday night. (Click here to see the remaining screening times.)

The film traces the life of Emmanuel Jal from his childhood as a child soldier in southern Sudan in the late 80s to his career as a rapper today. Emmanuel's life is a very powerful, touching story. I've had the pleasure to work with Emmanuel and director Karim Chrobog over the last few weeks and I was so impresed by these two young men and their work that I wanted to support them by encouraging all of you to see the film. If you're not in New York, check out the film's website for their upcoming festival schedule and news about distribution: www.warchildmovie.com.
