Roya Hakakian and Robert DeNiro

Hakakian directed, wrote and produced Armed and Innnocent a documentary which was a finalist at the 2002 Hollywood Movie Awards. Denied a childhood and often subjected to horrific violence, some 300,000 children are serving as soldiers in current armed conflicts. Narrated by Robert DeNiro, Armed & Innocent is a compelling documentary that shares the personal experiences of the children who have been direct participants in war. Their stories of courage, along with the artwork of former child soldiers collected from around the world, invite the viewer into a world of violence no child should ever experience. These children, who have overcome incredible obstacles to reintegrate into society, tell emotional testimonies of deceit and desperation, but also of strength and hope.
