February 17: Restore Gulu + Beautiful Africa
The Gasparilla International Film Festival and Watoto US present:
A Film & Concert Benefit at Tampa Theatre
Sunday, February 17, 2013 at 5:00 pm (doors open 4:30pm)
Watoto, an internationally renowned non-profit providing rescue for orphans and widows in Africa, along with the Gasparilla International Film Festival, present an inspiring night of film and live song and dance performances.
"Restore Gulu: Child Solider No More" documents the powerful story of restoration and hope in a community ravaged by an unthinkable war on children, and the journey of healing and forgiveness that must take place to rebuild a community.
Immediately following the film, the globally renowned Watoto Children’s Choir, comprised of former orphans ages 6 to 15 years old on tour from Uganda, will appear live to perform their newest Broadway style song and dance production "Beautiful Africa: A New Generation".
The Watoto Children’s Choir recently gained worldwide attention by performing for the Queen of England at Buckingham Palace, and also for the President at the White House.
A VIP reception and meet & greet with the Watoto Children’s Choir will be held at 4:00pm.
All proceeds will benefit the continued rescue of orphans and vulnerable women in Africa, as well as the local film community.
