A Child’s War

Fom my SLED list (Second Life Educators) came this announcement today:

The video “A Child’s War” was the year-end project for the Global Kids youth leaders in Queens, New York who spent the year working in Global Kids’ Virtual Video Project, at the Museum of the Moving Image, funded by the MacArthur Foundation. The video is based on research done by the youth about the situation of child soldiers in Uganda and the upcoming trial at the International Criminal Court.

Here is the video, but be warned, it’s pretty horrific:

  1. Angela — thanks for posting this video; it’s quite powerful. I’ve only recently started to learn more about machinima, but had not yet seen productions aimed at social justice issues.

    P.S. edublogs.org was having so many problems, I switched over to wordpress (so if you could update my url on your blogroll, that’d be great!). It’s now http://kristinscott.wordpress.com/.

    thanks! Kristin (Solstice)

  2. Oh thanks Kristin! My blog reading has been slow the past couple of months and I haven’t been keeping up. I love wordpress, it is just so much more reliable than any other blogging software I’ve used to date (which would be five other types). Anyway, all updated now. Great post about spaces in SL by the way, I’ve been thinking a lot about it too and will post something on the same topic soon!
