Dear Livingston and partners, thank you so much for the press statement you put two days ago. It brought so much awareness to this film that talks about j+ngle justice as a menace in our society and the things that needs to be done to stop or curtail it.
You’re backing over nothing. Dark October is a complete work of fiction. Dedicated to the memory of Aluu 4. There are no facts in the film. I wish you’d watch it before taking any action because I guarantee you, you would be wasting your time and resources.
The movie does not carry the names or images of the boys mentioned. There are no family members represented in the film apart from a fictionalized mother and sister…
