KONY 2012 - Part 2 ‘MOVE’
The film feels familiar, featuring the same quick editing and emotional testimonies as found in “Kony 2012.” You’ll likely be surprised by the candor with which the controversies surrounding “Kony 2012″ — such as co-founder Jason Russell’s psychological breakdown, and the discussions of whether the organization and film are scams — are addressed.
The 30-minute documentary ends with a call to rally world leaders in Washington, D.C. on Nov. 17, two weeks after the presidential election, demanding the power holders follow up on their promises to capture Joseph Kony.
Unlike “Kony 2012,” which focused on the atrocities committed by Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army, the majority of “Move” focuses on the Invisible Children movement as the “Kony 2012″ campaign nears its ending date of December 2012.
“This is the story of a group of millennials from around the world trying to do something big to play our part to end a war,” the film says. “For nine years, Invisible Children has been trying to prove that all life is valuable and equal by telling the story of how it hasn’t been treated that way in central and east Africa.”
According to “Move,” the goal for “Kony 2012″ had been to reach 500,000 views by the expiration date at the end of 2012. “Kony 2012″ was viewed 1 million times in under 36 hours.
“Move” highlights the campaign’s successes, which, in addition to the film’s spread, include the May arrest of Caesar Achellam, one of Kony’s close affiliates.
