This is a searing look at child soldiers in Africa. Set in an unnamed country, the film dives straight in without an introduction as a group of heavily armed kids terrorise the population. Their leader is Johnny Mad Dog, who is in his mid-teens, but some of his followers are as young as ten. Be warned, the film contains many very distressing scenes, which is the only honest way to deal with such a terrible subject.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
