“Between Two Fires” is a documentary that examines human rights issues in Northern Uganda. The film details two decades of armed conflict between the Lord’s Resistance Army and the Ugandan government, which has displaced approximately two million Ugandans.
The film covers the acts of kidnapping, mutilation, rape and murder committed by the rebel army, as well as the human rights violations of the government forces.
