DP High Screens New “Invisible Children” Documentary

Film Focuses on Plight of Ugandan, Sudanese “Child Soldiers”

Dos Pueblos High School’s Humanitarian Club will be hosting a screening of the second Invisible Children documentary film, Black is for Sunday the evening of Wednesday, February 20. The students planning the event hope to fill the 600-seat theater to bring awareness to the dangers children are suffering in northern Uganda and parts of Sudan. Created by three university students who travel to Northern Uganda and witnessed the atrocities of suffering and danger effecting the lives of hundreds of African children, Invisible Children aims to prevent the atmosphere of political turmoil that forces children into rebel armies that roam the area, in search of their own political justices. These children are subjected to the most horrific aspects of war and danger; with the release of their first documentary in 2004, Invisible Children’s mission was to spread awareness to a crisis the world knew little about and maintain a stable quality of life for war-affected children by providing education, learning environments and provide economic opportunities for the communities affected.

Black is for Sunday is Invisible Children’s latest film documentary and will be screened publicly in Santa Barbara at Dos Pueblos High School on its promotional tour across the nation. Invisible Children representative John Shults and others will be available after the screening for question and answer sessions.

The event will run from 7-9 p.m. at the Dos Pueblos Theater at 7299 Alameda Avenue, Goleta. For questions or information contact the DP Humanitarian Club at
