Ikland is a feature-length documentary about a journey through the remote mountains of northern Uganda, toward an encounter with the notorious Ik people.

It was produced by Cevin Soling, and directed by Soling and Hilbert David.

The Ik were described as a culture of depraved sociopaths who laughed out loud at the misery of others, who stole food from elders, and abandoned their own children.

Ik culture was expected to die in the late 1960s, shortly after their discovery by a revolted anthropologist who suggested that the Ugandan government intervene to forcibly disperse them.

They survived, however

Ikland was the winner of the Best Content in a Documentary award at the Boston International Film Festival, and was positively reviewed by Variety and The New York Times.
