TAKING GUNS FROM BOYS

This powerful film by Jessie Deeter (producer of “Who Killed the Electric Car?”) is the story of the end of Liberia’s civil war. Years of fighting and squandered resources have left Liberia a shattered nation-state struggling to pull itself back together.  UN Force Commander Daniel Opande has come to try to create order out of chaos; he has one year to deploy 15,000 multinational troops throughout the tiny West African nation, secure the country’s borders, make Liberia safe for civilians, and disarm 40,000 fighters from three warring factions.
Produced, Written and Directed by Jessie Deeter.
