Jesse James Miller's documentary Uganda Rising charts the lengthy war between Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni's army and the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a rebel group led by Joseph Kony, a man who claims to converse with higher powers. The LRA add to their numbers by kidnapping children in Uganda and training them to become mercenaries, occasionally committing atrocities against their very own families. Museveni responds to these tactics by rounding up citizens into camps that have on occasion been as deadly as the LRA.
