Ayeny Steve is smiling his way up after counting another success. The Atonga entertainment boss on Saturday added to the list of his winnings an award from Zanzibar International Film Festival (ZIFF) Held In Zanzibar.
KONY: Order from Above is the title of the movie that made the son of the soil emerge victor from a list of other giant film makers across the continent.
The movie which is yet to be premiered in Uganda, according to Ayeny Steve follows the stories of victims of brutality inflicted by the Lord’s Resistance Army in Northern Uganda.
Steve couldn’t hold this excitement from his facebook friends and fans, so he posted:
Kony-Order From Above had a crew and cast of 445 people. I can’t mention all their names but I can only pray for you that may God continue using you and may he increase you. You guys did a great job and let the world see it. I want to dedicate this award to the people of Northern Uganda who went through Brutality and all sorts of bad things that I can’t mention. It’s time for us to tell our stories. Thanks to all the filmmakers in Uganda. May we use our skills to speak for our country Uganda.
The award that comes with a package of $1000 rose form the Best East African Talent award category.
There is no doubt whether the movie is dope, Atonga entertainment doesn’t disappoint. Let’s wait for it to hit the stores.
