What started out as a filmmaking adventure transformed into much more when these boys from Southern California discovered a tragedy that disgusted and inspired them, a tragedy where children are both the weapons and the victims. After returning to the States, they created the documentary quot;Invisible Children: Rough Cut,quot; a film that exposes the tragic realities of northern Uganda’s night commuters and child soldiers. ” http://www.invisiblechildren.com/about/whoWeAre/
