Kassim Ouma’s Film Premiere On Sundance!

Many boxing fans have heard the harrowing tale of Kassim Ouma’s troubled history as a former child-soldier and can now view the film that chronicles his story. The award-winning documentary feature “Kassim the Dream” makes its’ broadcast premiere on Monday night at 8 PM on the Sundance Channel.
A former world junior-middleweight boxing champion, 31-year-old Kassim “The Dream” Ouma outwardly exudes good cheer and charm in filmmaker Kief Davidson’s documentary profile. However, Kassim’s dark past is unlike that of any other boxing star. At age six he was kidnapped by Ugandan rebel soldiers and forced into duty as a child soldier during a bloody civil war. Now, after a decade in exile in America, Kassim undertakes a painful six-day journey home to Uganda, where he admits that as a child he committed both torture and murder.

Academy Award winning actor Forest Whitaker was the Executive Producer for the Ouma film, which picked up a number of major international awards. It was one of five nominations for the Best Documentary Feature Award by the International Documentary Association in 2008. It won the AFI Fest Audience and Best Documentary awards, the Silverdocs American Film Market Award, received the Doc U Award at the world’s leading documentary festival in Amsterdam, amongst other honors. The film has been shown in theaters around the world and on Sundance Selects series on pay-per-view last winter.
