Invisible Children's Kony 2012 video brought infamy to Central Africa's rebel group, the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) and its leader, Joseph Kony.

But many have criticised the campaign for ignoring voices from people on the ground.

A group of Ugandan bloggers and filmmakers, working under the collective "Uganda Speaks", were expected to release their own film online looking at the LRA and its impact from their perspective - a move that aims to bring local voices to the debate.
