The Story of Bookec

Bookec the film tells the story of three women, Beatrice, Alice and Esther and how they overcame their tragic past with the LRA. Kidnapped and forced against their will to become part of the LRA, the women in Bookec show that their past does not determine their future. Their stories are gripping, captivating even and within each frame a promise of strength, resilience and hope is delivered to the viewer.

My Vision for Bookec

We will change tragedy into triumph for former girl soldiers of Uganda's LRA. Through Bookec, we would love to see other women like Beatrice, Alice and Esther become accepted by not only the families that stigmatize them, but entire society. Through this film, we aim to break down cultural barriers and open up opportunities for women across the world who have been at the receiving end of armed military violence.
