Forest Whitaker narrates the documentary film "Sewing Hope" which screens at the San Luis Obispo International Film Festival on March 6-7.

The film by Derek Watson tells the story of Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe who leads a vocational school in Gulu, Uganda, where she uses practical skills to restore dignity, independence, and hope to formerly abducted women.

Here's the synopsis: For 25 years Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army terrorized Northern Uganda. Children were stolen from their families and brainwashed to be soldiers. Girls were degraded to sex slaves for Kony's officers. The gunfire has ceased, but one battle remains-the battle to restore the future of the children of Uganda. Forest Whitaker narrates the story of Sister Rosemary Nyirumbe's fight to bring hope back to her nation.
