Students at Saugus High School are invited to learn more about the unseen war in northern Uganda and its effect on the children of that country during a screening of “Invisible Children: Rough Cut” on Oct. 12.

Motivated by the war in northern Uganda, “Invisible Children” was created by three young filmmakers with a singular mission: To use the power of stories to change lives around the world.

After returning to the states, they created the documentary film that exposes the tragic realities of northern Uganda’s night commuters and child soldiers.

Saugus High resource teacher Marcus Garrett, who is coordinating the program, hopes to spark students’ interests in the situation in Africa.

“This is an ideal opportunity for our students to begin asking questions and analyze what’s happening in the world,” Garrett said.

The 45-minute presentation will be offered during two consecutive class periods — period 4, 10:23 to 11:20 a.m. and period 5, 11:25 a.m. to 12:22 p.m. — in the Saugus High gym.
