Darfur Now
Documentarian Ted Braun's first theatrical work examines the genocide in Darfur through the eyes of six distinct individuals who are doing what they can to combat the situation. Recent UCLA graduate Adam Sterling is the director of the Sudan Divestment Task Force, which seeks to get states to divest funds in Sudan. Dr. Luis Moreno-Ocampo is an Argentine native serving as the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court at The Hague, where he is investigating Sudanese leaders as war criminals. Ecuadorian Pablo Recalde is the head of the World Food Program in West Darfur, where he risks his life trying to get food to the sick and starving people in the region. Hejewa Adam has taken up arms in her homeland, joining a rebel group defending the Fur people and battling the Janjaweed and government forces. Ahmed Mohammed Abakar was forced to flee his village and is now the leader at a refugee camp in Hamadea, where some 50,000 displaced people live. And Oscar nominee Don Cheadle, after starring in HOTEL RWANDA, has written a book, NOT ON OUR WATCH, with John Prendergast, that helps people understand genocide--and gives them information on what they can do to stop it. Each of these people is making a difference in Darfur in a different way, through the legal system, legislation, the media, and even violence if necessary, in order to save and protect a people under siege. DARFUR NOW is not a partisan film; it demonstrates how men and women in all walks of life and with various religious and political beliefs can come together to effect change. The film was begun with a grant from Steven Spielberg's Righteous Persons Foundation. 2007. Rated PG for thematic material involving crimes against humanity. Fur,Arabic,English. 99 minutes.
