SEASON 2, EPISODE 3: Dominic Akena: The Survival Story
Domica Akena was nine-years-old when he first held a gun. He was abducted from his village by the Lord’s Resistance Army in Uganda and trained to be a child soldier. One fine day he escaped the clutches of the rebels and found his way to a refugee camp. Four years later, in this camp, he meets a pair of documentary filmmakers who capture the story of his harrowing escape, and this encounter ultimately changes his life. Today, Dominic is a documentary filmmaker based in Toronto, who uses film to process his traumatic past.
