Invisible Children Release Kony 2012 Sequel
The new film comes just one month after Kony 2012, which brought attention to the Ugandan guerilla leader Joseph Kony and the use of child soldiers in his Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). The new video, however, also addresses criticism levied at its cause.
Critics say Invisible Children overplays the influence of Joseph Kony and his LRA. Others argue the charity is tied to Evangelical Christian groups in the United States and therefore maintains a "fundamentalist agenda." According to Mashable, however, 57 people have been abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army since the first film.
"Invisible Children will, I think, produce the arrest of Joseph Kony this year," Luis Moreno-Ocampo, the chief prosecutor for the International Criminal Court, told Reuters.
According to Gizmodo, the original Kony film is the “most viral” video of all time, beating out pop sensations like Justin Bieber and Lady Gaga. "No matter how you feel about the controversial documentary about Ugandan general Joseph Kony, you've got to admit its reach is remarkable," wrote Gizmodo columnist Mario Aguilar.
