War Witch (Rebelle)

Described as: "Kim Nguyen’s harrowing film tells the story of a 12-year-old Central African girl (Rachel Mwanza) abducted by a rebel army and forced to commit unspeakable acts as a child soldier." See: http://www.metrocinema.org/film_view/3943/ for full details.

The movie starts at 4 pm so let's meet at 3:30 pm. I (Greg) will be in the lobby by or on the couches. I have no flowers or sparkly hats yet so you'll have to look for a tall guy with shaved head and a goatee. Many say they are sure they know me from somewhere. Afterwards we can have a post movie discussion and given the time maybe we can do it over sushi! This is negotiable.

    Well-made film. I liked that the main character narrated her story in second-person, speaking to her unborn child.

    The film itself is very gory and disturbing, given the content. That such things actually happen is scary and mind-boggling. A story of extreme cruelty and amazing survival.

    Great film as disturbing as it is thought provoking. Why do we as a species commit such horrors?

    Hi everyone, I kind of screwed up. I put in the text to meet at 3:30pm but had the official start time at 4pm. It is now fixed. Please note that we meet at 3:30pm and the film starts at 4pm. Sorry for any confusion caused.

    I'm down for this as the bits I saw of it before the End of Time looked really good!
