Bulla Karatasi: The Forgotten Massacre, produced by ICTJ and Kenyan media house Africa Uncensored, is the first ever in-depth documentary film to explore the events surrounding the massacre that took place in Kenya's northern region of Garissa in November 1980 and its ongoing impact on the community and Kenyan society. The extreme, targeted violence by Kenyan security forces resulted in over 3,000 lost lives.
