Children in War In today’s wars 90 per-cent of the casualties are civilians, compared to 50 per-cent in World War II. During the 1990s, two million children were killed in wars throughout the world. Filmed on location in Bosnia, Rwanda, Israel and North-ern Ireland, this feature-length documentary explores war-torn neighborhoods, orphanages, schools and refu-gee camps. Through the eyes of children, the tragedy of war is witnessed. The children struggle to heal the past through art therapy and self-expression, but their per-sonal traumas are the recurring themes of war and terror-ism: fear of death, threat of physical injury; destruction of homes and displacement; disintegration of families; and the resilience of children in war.
$10 admission, $5 under 18.
