Darfur

Darfur Now: The new documentary featuring “Hotel Rwanda” star Don Cheadle, and the Genocide Intervention Network’s own Adam Sterling, director of the Sudan Divestment Task Force! “Darfur Now” is a story of hope in the midst of one of humanity's darkest hours — a call to action for people everywhere to end the catastrophe unfolding in Darfur, Sudan. In this documentary, the struggles and achievements of six different individuals from inside Darfur and around the world bring to light the tragedy in Sudan and show how the actions of one person can make a difference to millions. Watch the trailer.

Sand and Sorrow: While analyzing the historical events that have given rise to an Arab-dominated government's willingness to kill and displace its own indigenous African people, “Sand and Sorrow” also examines the international community's “legacy of failure” to respond to such profound crimes against humanity in the past. But while immersed in the despairing crisis of our time, Paul Freedman manages to give voice to the ever-growing and inspiring movement of those who wish to make “Never Again” finally mean something.

They Turned Our Desert Into Fire: In 2005, filmmaker Mark Brecke traveled cross-country by train to present his photos of the Darfur genocide to members of Congress. During the trip, Mark shared his photos and first-hand accounts with fellow passengers. Their reactions proved compelling as each one asked "Why does the American public not know about this epic crisis and how can the world continue to do nothing?" The film chronicles these events and presents the most compelling question, "Which had greater impact, showing the photographs to passengers on the train or showing them to members of Congress?" It illustrates that the Darfur genocide is not simply a problem for the world's governments.

The Art of Flight: The Art of Flight is a guerrilla documentary that was shot illegally in Egypt on camcorders and a laptop. The film serves as a back story to the 2006 massacre of Sudanese refugees in Cairo. The filmmaker was nearly arrested three times during the course of shooting. This feature length film tells the story of three people, a refugee from southern Sudan, a human rights activist from northern Sudan and an American journalist in self-imposed exile, all living in Cairo. For very different reasons, the trio has found themselves struggling to survive in Egypt, a U.S. financed dictatorship which has reluctantly become their home.

Darfur Diaries: In October, 2004 a team of three independent filmmakers — Aisha Bain, Jen Marlowe and Adam Shapiro — left for Darfur, Sudan and eastern Chad. After monitoring the worsening political and humanitarian crisis for months and recognizing that the mainstream media offered marginal and inadequate coverage, the team set out with the goal of providing a platform for the people of Darfur (both those displaced inside Darfur and those living in refugee camps in Chad) to speak for themselves about their experiences, their fears, and their hopes for the future.

All About Darfur: While documenting the atrocities taking place in Darfur, Taghreed Elsanhouri investigates how notions of race and ethnicity are constructed in Sudan. In one scene, Elsanhouri visits the elementary school she had previously attended. Just as in the days of her childhood, the students reenact the battles which led to the formation of Sudan, with the lighter skinned children playing Turks and Arabs, and the darker skinned children playing the vanquished Africans. Despite its significance, race, Elsanhouri discovers, may be too crude a concept to understand Sudan's bitter ethnic conflict. Ultimately, Elsanhouri encourages viewers to understand that the ethnic strife in Darfur is a product of scarcity, as Darfurians are dividing along ethnic lines to battle for limited resources.

The Devil Came on Horseback: Exposes the tragedy taking place in Darfur as seen through the eyes of an American witness who has since returned to the US to take action to stop it. Using the exclusive photographs and first hand testimony of former U.S. Marine Captain Brian Steidle, The Devil Came on Horseback takes the viewer on an emotionally charged journey into the heart of Darfur, Sudan, where an Arab run government is systematically executing a plan to rid the province of it’s black African citizens.
