Members of a club at Lambert High have invited their peers, parents and the public to attend a free documentary screening this week in the school’s auditorium.

Representatives from Invisible Children, an international organization that uses films to tell the stories of children in Northern Uganda affected by war, will be there.

Lambert’s local affiliate of the group, the Invisible Children Club, has about 80 members.

Adviser Stephanie Harrison said club members hope to pack the auditorium Tuesday for “The Rescue of Joseph Kony’s Child Soldiers,” a 35-minute documentary.

Harrison said films such as this one “bring a first-time awareness of the horrors of war” to students.

She added that this particular documentary is “prepared in a very MTV-like fashion.”

“It holds your interest,” she said. “It’s not some guy lecturing. It’s about college kids trying to make a difference.”

After showing the documentary, representatives from Invisible Children will answer questions from viewers.

Merchandise like T-shirts and bracelets will also be for sale.

All proceeds benefit Invisible Children which, according to its Web site is “a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing financial resources to invisible children by documenting their true, untold stories in a creative and relevant way, resulting in positive change.”
