Private Project

Beats in a jungle

The story is inspired by the effects of Lord’s resistance Army abductions that saw many young lives lost, dreams shattered, youths molested and families separated.
The film is about a young girl (ADONG) who is dedicated and determined to make her life worthwhile through her dance. She is a well grounded young girl growing to become a dancer and is dedicated to achieving her dream. She meets Mwaine a young man from the other side of her customs and tribe. Despite their different background they fall in love and plan a future together.
However, a once childhood meeting with a now ruthless rebel leader (AKON) follows her paths and is aimed at bringing Adong to his line of captive wives. Her success is seen as a means to uplift his existence and a way to execute his obsession and lunacy
Set in North and western Uganda the film explores themes of love, hate, betrayal, victimization, destruction and the challenges of growing up in a social conflict zone.

Director Statement

I have dedicated my effort and personal savings to make this film. Although still low budget, the story is highly inspired by real life experiences. A thought into abductions and a hell lot of bad experiences during this captivity. Having listen to some youth victims of war making beats in a jungle had a mixture of feelings. I hope you will enjoy this humble beginning .
