Experiencing Interruptions?


A portrait of Kevin Doris Ejon, a 29 years old Ugandese reporter known for being one of the few journalists who have ever met and interviewed Joseph Kony, the rebel leader who for the past 25 years disseminated terror and death throughout Northern Uganda. Today Kevin investigates the wounds left behind by the war and the difficult, challenging road towards peace and reconciliation. How do people affected by two decades of war regain their peace of mind? Can those who took part in the fighting go back to a normal life? The documentary revolves around the central figure of a brave and dynamic young Ugandan journalist, searching for testimonies and personal stories. In a journey which brings her from Kampala to Northern Uganda, Kevin poses questions to the witnesses (and to herself) about memories of the war, desires, dreams, and hopes for the future. The central question remains: is it possible to rebuild peace?

Director Statement

Kevin represents for us the new generation of African women, personally committed and determined to build new scenarios for their country. The choice to tell her story and to follow her investigative report on the process of reconciliation seemed very crucial in this historical moment, when wars, violence and fanaticism prevail on any type of logic, and political solutions seem more inadequate day by day. As always, women continue to be deeply wounded. With this film we wanted to give value to the role of women and of information in the peace-building process.
