COME BACK TO SUDAN

Daniel Junge and Patti Bonnet - USA - 2008 - 27 min

Coming home is an emotional journey for everyone.  But for Lado Jurkin and his fellow Sudanese refugees, its the journey of their lives. With the signing of peace accords between the North and South Sudanese governments in 2005, now is the time for the countrys first peace in two decades, and its first real chance at building a future.  For Lado, Mabi and Deng, who haven't seen their villages since they were 8 years old, now is the time to reunite with long lost family and to know the country they left behind.  For their adoptive American mother, a woman they call Momma Jean, now is the time to see Africa for the first time, and to see how she can help.  Now is the time to Come Back to Sudan.

AS WE FORGIVE

Laura Waters Hinson - USA - 2008 - 53 min

Could you forgive a person who murdered your family?  This is the question faced by the subjects of As We Forgive, a documentary about Rosaria and Chantaltwo, Rwandan women coming face-to-face with the men who slaughtered their families during the 1994 genocide. The subjects of As We Forgive speak for a nation still wracked by the grief of a genocide that killed one in eight Rwandans in 1994. Overwhelmed by an enormous backlog of court cases, the government has returned over 50,000 thousand genocide perpetrators back to the very communities they helped to destroy.

Without the hope of full justice, Rwanda has turned to a new solution: Reconciliation. But can it be done? Can survivors truly forgive the killers who destroyed their families? Can the government expect this from its people? And can the church, which failed at moral leadership during the genocide, fit into the process of reconciliation today? In As We Forgive, director Laura Waters Hinson and narrator Mia Farrow explore these topics through the lives of four neighbors once caught in opposite tides of a genocidal bloodbath, and their extraordinary journey from death to life through forgiveness.
