    I couldn't follow the plot (and frankly, too long for me to watch right in the middle of the night), so I just looked it up and found a Know Your Meme entry:

    In the spring of 2003, three filmmakers (Jason Russell, Bobby Bailey, Laren Poole) traveled to Africa to document the genocide that was occurring in Darfur. Instead, they stumbled upon a little-known war that originated in northern Uganda in 1987, making it Africa’s longest-running war. They produced a documentary named Invisible Children about the children being abducted and turned into child soldiers by Joseph Kony and his Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Out of fear of being abducted, the children of Uganda would walk miles every night to places of refuge in order to avoid the LRA. The film follows a group of these children and tells their stories.

    The three filmmakers later formed an organization named Invisible Children Inc.

    In 2012, Invisible Children released a short film on the social media platform YouTube demanding the capture of Kony. A website called Kony2012released a short video promoting awareness of Kony and his actions.

    The film ‘KONY 2012’ is a film (written and directed by Jason Russell and others) and campaign by Invisible Children that aims to make Joseph Kony famous, not to celebrate him, but to raise support for his arrest and set a precedent for international justice. The film gained over 50 thousand views on YouTube in just one day after being released on March 5th, 2012. By the 6th, it had 1.3 million.
    Edit: Aaaaaaand my friend just texted me a tl;dr copypasta about this exact subject. :V
