The Rescuers

This film traces the journey of Stephanie Nyombayire, a young Rwandan anti-genocide activist who teams up with Sir Martin Gilbert, the renowned Holocaust historian, to travel across 15 countries and three continents interviewing survivors and descendants of the diplomats who rescued tens of thousands of Jews from the unspeakable horrors of the Nazi death camps. While Nyombayire embarks upon this quest in an effort to uncover potential solutions for the ongoing genocide in Darfur and elsewhere, what emerges from their journey is a testament to the ways in which the inherent good in the human spirit can trump institutional evil.

All About Darfur

"Up until now the perilous situation in Sudan has been seen only from outside the country. All About Darfur offers an opportunity to hear it explained by eloquent, diverse, even contradictory voices from within Sudan. The director talks to ordinary Sudanese in outdoor tea shops, markets, refugee camps and living rooms about how deeply rooted prejudices could suddenly burst into a wild fire of ethnic violence."

Living With Refugees

"Journalist Sorious Samura returns to Africa once again to discover the realities of being one of Darfur's countless refugees. More than a million people have been forced to flee their homes by militia attacks on the province in western Sudan. Tens of thousands have been killed. Samura spends a month living as a refugee with one family as they travel from the Sudanese border to a refugee camp in Chad. Sharing with them the insecurities of life far from home in an environment that provides no guarantee of food or shelter, even from the aid agencies, he gains a unique insight into what it really means to be a refugee"--Container.

All About Darfur [electronic resource]

Director Taghreed Elsanhouri says she felt uniquely qualified to make this documentary "because as a northerner in Sudan I know what it is to belong to a dominant group, and as a black woman in Britain I know what it's like to be marginalized." The film follows Elsanhouri as she returns to Sudan to see how the seemingly-racially harmonious country of her youth could have become the scene of two of the worst instances of ethnic cleansing in recent African history. Talking with Sudanese people in cafes, markets, refugee camps, and living rooms, Elsanhouri finds that race does matter.
