They Came at Night is an official selection of the Brooklyn Film Festival this year and joins an impressive line up of films. They Came at Night is the latest DTJ film made in collaboration with Invisible Children about a child soldier in Joseph Kony’s LRA who risks everything to escape and come home.

So all New Yorkers, clear your calendars the first week of June to indulge in everything the Brooklyn Film Festival will bring. Stay tuned for screening dates and times.

And more to come about how They Came at Night is impacting communities in central Africa through Mobile Cinema screenings and Community-Defection Committees.

Dual purpose film. It works.

DTJ is pleased to announce that They Came at Night was chosen as a Vimeo staff pick. The film was made in partnership with Invisible Children and was shot exclusively with first-time-actors, who were personally affected by the war during a short production schedule.

This film is currently being toured across three countries in central Africa by local organizations in conjunction with an in-depth facilitated workshop to prepare communities to peacefully receive LRA escapees who return home. This film is being used as a catalyst for forgiveness.

Reportage: Let the World Know

Posted by | Uncategorized | No Comments

DTJ presents our first Reportage piece profiling Sister Giovanna, a Camboni nun who lives in Nzara, South Sudan and serves her community who has survived LRA violence. Sister Giovanna has lived through two decades of violence committed by the LRA, first in Uganda and now in South Sudan. Just yesterday, Senator Inhofe read a letter from Sister Giovanna to the Senate, describing in detail the horror of the LRA, coming on the heels of President Obama’s recent decision to send 100 US advisers to the region to address the ongoing violence and stop Joseph Kony, the leader of the LRA.

Special thanks to the team at Resolve and all of their hard work to make not only the recent news from President Obama possible but their partnership with DTJ to travel to LRA affected regions and document stories like this.
