Description
  • Kony 2012 is a film created by Invisible Children, Inc. to promote their "Stop Kony" movement.
  • Kony 2012 is a short film produced by Invisible Children, Inc.. It was released on March 5, 2012. The film's purpose was to promote the charity's "Stop Kony" movement to make African cult and militia leader, indicted war criminal and the International Criminal Court fugitive Joseph Kony globally known in order to have him arrested by the end of 2012, when the campaign expired. The film spread virally. As of March 1, 2014, the film has received over 99 million views and 1.3 million "likes" on the video-sharing website YouTube, and over 21.9 thousand "likes" on Vimeo, with other views on a central "Kony 2012" website operated by Invisible Children. The intense exposure of the video caused the "Kony 2012" website to crash shortly after it began gaining widespread popularity. A poll suggested that more than half of young adult Americans heard about Kony 2012 in the days following the video's release. It was included among the top international events of 2012 by PBS and called the most viral video ever by TIME. The campaign resulted in a resolution by the United States Senate and contributed to the decision to send troops by the African Union. Wikipedia
