A BRILLIANT GENOCIDE: Documentary Film Screening
A brillant genocide

Directed by Ebony Butler
Australia / 2016 / 77mins / World Premiere

A BRILLIANT GENOCIDE examines the hidden history of the Ugandan regime of Yoweri Museveni. It lays bare the atrocities committed by Ugandan government soldiers against the Acholi people of Northern Uganda since 1986. The documentary is a counterpoint to Kony 2012, which brought worldwide awareness to the crimes committed by the Lords Resistance Army. The film demonstrates how the Museveni regime has used Kony as a straw man, enabling the Ugandan government to further establish its control over northern Uganda and garner international sympathy and support. A BRILLIANT GENOCIDE utilizes a substantial range of interviews from prominent Ugandan thinkers, opposition figures, activists, exiles and émigrés, presenting an unmatched and uniquely Ugandan interpretation of Ugandas recent history, which is all too relevant to contemporary events considering the upcoming 2016 Ugandan elections.
