Through twenty years of war, the Acholi people of Northern Uganda endured rape, torture and child abduction. Thousands died. Many were displaced in squalid camps. Others are still missing. Despite all of this, the Acholi are united in a belief that the only real solution is reconciliation and forgiveness.  I edited this program for broadcast on NBC-TV affiliates and contributed graphics and original music.

The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America produced this program for their members to promote an understanding of Islam, one of the world’s fastest-growing religions. Since September 11, 2001, interest in Islam and the growing number of Muslim neighbors in the United States has skyrocketed. This documentary answers questions such as, “What do Muslims believe?” “Who was the Prophet Mohammed?” “How does Islam relate to the Christian faith?” In addition to the editing, I contributed graphics and original music.
