Mozambique [electronic resource]: Stolen Children

The use of kidnapped children as fighters was a systematic practice by RENAMO, Mozambique's guerilla-led opposition movement. Julio was 10 years old and asleep with his family when RENAMO troops stormed his village, killing many and dragging Julio away to become a soldier. This documentary follows Julio's journey, after his escape, to be reunited with his mother - and although his story has a happy ending, many parents find their long-lost children have become hardened assassins who bear little resemblance to the children they lost. The film includes interviews with the UN's head in Mozambique, the prime minister, and RENAMO leader Alfons Dhlakama.

But breaking the cycle of poverty and despair will require commitment on a global scale. Uplifting and thought-provoking, this documentary addresses fundamental issues that are all too often met with resounding silence.
