Children of War
A much-needed look at the chaotic years between 1991 and 1994 in the townships east of Johannesburg, Children of War reveals vital stories often left untold. We follow the lives of those who took up arms as young teenagers, to protect their once peaceful community. The film explores the insidious origins of the violence that seemed, for many involved, to appear from nowhere.
