Right To Life: Uganda
1988, 30:00 minutes, colour
Uganda has witnessed some of the worst human rights violations in recent history. Director Robby Wodomal, exiled by dictator Idi Amin, examines the violation the fundamental right to life and the unending cycle of brutality this has produced.
Our guide on the journey is Joan Kakwenzerie, whose brother was killed and sister imprisoned by previous regimes. Now, as she investigates civil rights violations, we accompany her to ghost villages where entire populations have been wiped out.
With the Ugandan government using the country's scarce economic resources to solidify its own power, there seems to be no immediate solution to the starvation and poverty docuemented in this video.
Hard hitting and uncomprimising, this program is excellent for those interested in African studies, "Third World" history, contemporary politics, and human rights.
