Riveting documentary

This is a riveting movie which demonstrates how one man's passion and commitment can create great change in a community. I saw this movie at the Cleveland International Film Festival and was blown away. This documentary introduces us to an ancient ritual practice in an African tribe in which children suffering from a curse called "mingi" are killed to ensure the village does not suffer an adverse fate. Lale Labuko is a young tribesman whose father takes the extraordinary step of sending his son out of the village to get educated, contrary to the wishes of the tribal elders. Upon graduation, Lale pursues the ambitious goal of eliminating these ritualistic killings from his own and neighboring villages. This film documents his efforts, including its trials and tribulations, and is a compelling and incredibly thought-provoking account of the steps he and others have taken to save and create a future for these condemned children. I highly recommend this film to anyone interested in learning about other cultures or how they can effect change in their community.

Incredibly moving and well made

After watching this film at the Newport Beach Film Festival in 2015, I was left absolutely dumbfounded by the incredible story told by this film. A rare look into a culture unknown to the world was a wonder to behold but to find out the truth about mingi was incredibly emotional. I thought the filmmakers did a great job to not rely on shock value and instead focused on telling an interesting and heart-wrenching story.

After the screening the filmmakers were kind enough to field our questions and stayed long after the scheduled time to speak with anyone who wanted to learn more. These are genuinely good people that are genuinely great filmmakers and I can't recommend Omo Child enough!
