War Child

Il bambino soldato
by C. Karim Chrobog Documentary USA 2007 93'

From child soldier to promising international hip hop celebrity: the compelling story of Emmanuel Jal. In the early 1980, at the age of seven, Jal was swept into Sudan civil war, becoming one of the 10.000 of children conscripted on both sides of the two decades of conflicts. After almost five years in the South Sudan Liberation Army, he and his friends deserted, embarking on a harrowing journey that few survived. From refugee to rap star, now in his 20s, he is using his music to raise awareness about the ongoing humanitarian crisis in Sudan and the plight of child soldiers throughout the world.<%YOUTUBE=jzR-qx3mz_0%>
