Synopsis: A Brilliant Genocide is an expose of the brutal campaigns by the Yoweri Museveni regime to wipe out a significant part of Uganda’s Acholi people under the guise of crushing a rebellion by The Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). It lays bare the atrocities committed by Museveni’s army against the Acholi people of Northern Uganda since 1986 when he seized power. It includes interviews with survivors of the most pre meditated torture and murder. It is unfathotmable what has occurred, civilians who were raped in front of their families by Museveni’s soldiers, people buried alive, tortured and burnt alive, a form of abuse hitherto unheard of in Uganda: the humiliation and deprivation of a particular ethic group that has suffered like no other in Uganda’s history.
