Yesterday ‘A Brilliant Genocide’ was screened for the 5th time in just one month. The event was held in New York at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, hosted by Mr. Disu and Professor Tiffany Wheatland, including a post screening Q & A with Milton Allimadi.

Thank you to the American universities, colleges and film festivals who are getting behind our important documentary and larger justice campaign.

Would you like to host a screening for your school, workplace or community?

Get in touch and help end the silence around the untold genocide and crimes against humanity in Uganda.

Many of you have heard about #JosephKony and #LordResistanceArmy whose campaign of terror in Central Africa has caused much suffering.

But, that is just one side of a larger story of American taxpayer-facilitated crimes against humanity under Dictator Yoweri Museveni. The dictator continues to be the darling of the West and we must learn of our complicity in this human tragedy of the #Acholi peoples as Prof. Milton Allimadi explained. Prof. Allimadi is featured in this film and explains how the documentary came to be after one woman visited Uganda on the trail of Joseph Kony and found a bigger problem many of us helped to create. Thank you so much for this critical work of love and sacrifice Ebony Atlanta Butler!

Prof. Tiffany Wheatland and I chose to host a screening of A Brilliant Genocide as our first collaboration for the John Jay College of Criminal Justice community yesterday.

Melbourne Underground Film Festival selects A Brilliant Genocide to open the controversial festival, now in it’s 18th year of operation.

In 2012 small time African leader Joseph Kony was deemed a terrorist by the US government and became the world’s most wanted man thanks to Youtube. Like pieces of shrapnel, shards of reportage on his activities barely pierced mainstream Western media other than providing images of child soldiers.

TV news services and especially daily newspapers were useless in following the story of Kony and in fact the entire dire political situation in Uganda has remained wholly under-reported since. In fact, perhaps due to vested interests Uganda’s Wikipedia page has barely been updated since then.

Enter Melbourne based filmmaker Ebony Butler and the creation over a period of years of the documentary A BRILLIANT GENOCIDE. Sharp visuals, editing and consistent tone provide a picture of clarity with serious global consequences that deftly demonstrates the reality of its own title.

A BRILLIANT GENOCIDE is AFRICA BLOOD AND GUTS on another level that should create sadness and anger amongst all viewers but motivate those who are not simply numbed by it all. Of greatest importance is its exposure of world leaders both symbolic (the Queen & the Pope) and those in charge of military budgets (U.S presidents Clinton, Bush & Obama) and their continual support of Uganda’s President Museveni who as of 2016 was elected for a fifth term and remains the go to guy in Africa for arms purchases and is still upheld as a universal role model for how to run a third world country that apparently only needs its health services upgraded.

Museveni’s own monster squad has allowed the emergence of another monster Kony and in between these opposing forces the general population continues to suffer. A BRILLIANT GENOCIDE is a taut and timely documentary that positively radiates with its own brilliance. A very serious opening night film.
