In Kony's Shadow

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

The memory of a small but fanatical rebel group still casts a long shadow across the war-ravaged communities of northern Uganda. Long after it was driven out, many people still live in terror at the very mention of its name.

Explore photographs, films and personal accounts of those who survived the violence of Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army in northern Uganda. – from children forced to become soldiers to civilians caught up in the conflict.

Hear how Norman, a former child soldier who was abducted at the age of 12, struggled to hold on to his humanity during the two years he served with the rebels.

Find out how his parents coped with the return of their son – now a trained killer, and read personal testimonies from those who were terrorised by this small but brutal army.

Photography by Will Storr.

Films by Tom Pietrasik.
