War Child

‘Left home at the age of seven/one year later I’m carryin’ an Ak-47.”

For hip hop artist Emmanuel Jal, a former child soldier in Sudan’s brutal civil war, these lyrics are
hardly empty posturing. They are the bitter reality of a young man who was ‘forced to sin” but
determined to ‘never give up and never give in.

”Today, wounded but still hopeful, Emmanuel
Jal fights a new battle: bringing peace to his beloved Sudan and building schools in Africa. This
time, his weapon is a microphone.

Audiences from New York to Berlin to London rave about the award-winning film, War Child, and have embraced the hip-hop artist with a terrifying past and a gentle soul.

Interspersing original interviews, live concerts, and rare footage of Emmanuel Jal as a seven year-old boy, War Child will make viewers cry, laugh, dance, and celebrate the power of hope.
