Breathtaking account of one of the most violent wars in Africa
19 May 2007 | by (Rotterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Having just come back from Sierra Leone a couple of weeks ago, 5 years after the brutal war ended, it was breathtaking to see this documentary. Not breathtaking because it was so beautiful, but because it was so brutal. I didn't even know there was live footage from the war in Salone. Now I do.

I saw many children last month in the West-African country when I was there, with their hands of legs chopped off. I couldn't imagine how this happened. Now I do.

This documentary shows all the brutal details of a senseless war that tore apart one of the most beautiful countries in the world: Sierra Leone. From 1991 until 2002 200.000 people were brutally slaughtered by either the rebels, the ECOMOG force from Nigeria that was supposed to be keeping the peace and the Civil Defense Force that was supposed to defend the civilians. 50.000 people were amputated. Many people were shot without trial, even without any real cause other than some vague suspicions. Some of these shootings you see in this documentary. It's raw, it's brutal, it's unforgettable and it made me cry.
