The work of Washington, D.C.-based husband-and-wife filmmaking team Sean Fine and Andrea Nix Fine, War/Dance was made in the Patongo refugee camp in northern Uganda and focuses on three youths with back-stories no child should ever have to tell as they prepare for and compete in the National Music Competition in Kampala. It's a heartbreaking journey they take on camera, but one with a bit of salvation at its end, as the trio participates in a traditional Bwola dance of their ethnic group, the Acholi, through song, dance and musicianship.
Tonight's event, 6:30 p.m. at the Colfax Events Center, 1477 Columbine Street, begins with live music and snacks and ends with a community film discussion. Admission is a $10 donation at the door. For more information log on to the Urban Skye website or call 720-855-0489.
