Boy Soldier Video
Pratt Institute, 2009

A 30-second movie about child solders in Sierra Leone. This might be used as a public-service announcement for an organization like UNICEF or the UN. The words in distressed typography that flash over the boy's statements represent the deeper truths, nuances, and additional information behind the boy's factual statements. The statements are from a real former boy soldier in Sierra Leone. The music is "War Child" by Emmanuel Jal, a biographical piece about Jal's own experience as a child soldier in Sudan.
