This is a story that needs to be told – an important and time critical piece that no one else in the entire world is telling. My primary aim is to give a silenced minority, who have been the victims of the most horrific crimes against humanity, a voice and some sense of justice for what they have endured at the hands of their own government.
Secondly, I want to inspire people to take action and demand that the U.K and the U.S cut all military support to Uganda’s murderous dictator of 30 years.
Please stand with me, an demand justice for the Acholi people of Northern Uganda.
Key Crew Biographies
Ebony Butler is a Melbourne based filmmaker and human rights activist. She has a passion for creating films that educate and that have the potential to inspire social and political change. She is also the founder and director of not-for-profit organization ‘Bikes 4 Life’ which provides vital transport to impoverished and war-ravaged regions in Uganda, Tanzania, Cambodia and other neglected communities around the world.
Ebony has been in the industry for over ten years graduating from Sound Audio Engineering Institute (SAE) in 2007. After film school she established Atlantic Star Productions, a small production company that produced corporate media and short form content. Outside of the corporate video world Ebony maintained involvement with creative productions such as short films, music videos, short documentaries and experimental videography and editing projects.
She has a passion for the arts and enjoys acting and directing but her professional career has been dominated with roles as a camerawoman, producer, editor, or sometimes all three. She has produced; directed and edited at least 15 short films and has plans to test her ability with feature narrative films in the coming years.
In 2008 Ebony was offered a job as a camera operator and video editor in Cambodia with the Australian not-for-profit organisation Be A Hero. It was at that time when her life began to change. The things she witnessed in Cambodia had a serious effect on her and after returning to Australia she immediately got involved with human rights, volunteering and she became quite active with a group working in Africa, who enlightened her about a little known war in Uganda and a warlord named Kony.
In 2016, after seven years of travelling back and forth to Uganda and around the world, filming and researching the war, Ebony completed her debut feature length documentary titled A Brilliant Genocide. The award-winning documentary exposes untold truths of the war in Northern Uganda.
In the foreseeable future Ebony is committed to making media that can make a difference, producing films with strong messages, non-fiction that educates, inspires and can impact social and political change.
