Pay Attention

Invisible Children

there has been a lot of talk about how good or bad invisible children is. people discussing that these self-indulgent Californian chill dude types waste so much money on this film, they get carried away with their fame and popularity rather than the true cause. I think many valid arguments can be ping ponged on both sides of the fence, but I think drawing attention to these truly unjustifiable crimes against (young) humanity should be the focus of the conversation. For a well-budgeted film that uses a generous budget to powerfully get its point across and bring about wide scale awareness I think it does a damn good job. I think regardless of the criticism and there are quite a few, I am glad this exists. See the video, read the critque and then make up your own mind- donate/dont donate, participate/dont participate, spread it/dont spread it, love it/hate it but at least now we all know who Joseph Kony is, and isn’t that just the point?
