Human Rights Watch: War Witch Review

Canada’s official submission for this year’s Best Foreign Picture at the Academy Awards, War Witch, a film about a child soldier drafted into an unnamed sub-Saharan African rebel force, offers just about enough in the way of originality to make it stand out amongst a milieu of similar fictional ‘issue films’ made, nobly I should add, to draw attention to the terrible and perhaps unknown injustices of this world.
