DARFUR NOW

 

DARFUR NOW

Darfur Now is a call to action for people everywhere to help end the crisis in Darfur.

For the first time in history, the US Government has declared a genocide while it is ongoing. In this film, the struggles and achievements of six very different individuals bring to light the situation in Darfur and the need to get involved. From a UCLA graduate in Los Angeles, California, to a Darfurian woman who joins rebel forces, to the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague, to a United Nations humanitarian on the ground in Sudan, to an internationally known actor and activist, and finally to a community leader in a West Darfur refugee camp, the film portrays the heroic efforts of six people responding to a humanitarian tragedy unfolding before our eyes.

Written and directed by Ted Braun, the film explores the Darfur conflict through the first-hand experiences of Don Cheadle, Hejewa Adam, Pablo Recalde, Ahmed Mohammed Abakar, Luis Moreno-Ocampo, and Adam Sterling.

  1. The Darfur conflict is my pet project.  I have written several blogs on the subject.  Thanks for spreading the word.  I have also written a few pieces on Rwanda, which went through a similar genocidal situation.  Don Cheadle also spoke out on that conflict with "Hotel Rwanda", an excellent movie.  If you haven’t seen it, be prepared, as I cry each time I watch it.  See you in space(s).  Peace.
