Summary
In this alternately enraging and heartbreaking documentary, Canadian student Jonathan Pedneault and filmmaker Alexandre Trudeau travel to Darfur to try to make sense of reports of genocide in the region. Making their way clandestinely with a group of rebels into the heart of the Sudanese war zone, they chronicle stories of unfathomable human despair and courage: NGOs struggling to get food to the starving, refugees fighting for water, waves of people battered by civil war and incomprehensible violence stumbling into camps on the edge of survival. Succeeds brilliantly in capturing the human face behind this geopolitical crisis.
