Storyline

The struggles and achievements of six 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 efforts of six people responding to a humanitarian tragedy unfolding before our eyes. 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. Written by Warner Independent Pictures

A Time In Hell
18 November 2007 | by Seamus2829See all my reviews

Anybody who's been following the news of the last few years (outside of the USA,that is)should know of the horrible genocide of the people of Darfur,who's lives have been a misery from the government based militia known as the Janjuweed (if I'm spelling that right). Actor Don Cheadle (who appears in this film)was made aware of this appalling situation when he went to Africa to appear in 'Hotel Rwanda', and has been an outspoken critic of the mass genocide of the indigenous Fur people of Darfur. This film manages to tell six stories (Cheadle's included)of the plight to end the suffering and misery. The six intersecting stories interweave nicely among one another. If you saw the recent documentary 'The Devil Rides On Horseback',you'll get the basic idea. This film,although unpleasant at times,is a bit more audience friendly than 'Horseback', so older youngsters will be able to see it and not be quite as traumatized with the images,than in 'Horseback'. My only gripe is the music score, which relies on pseudo New Agey schmaltz,which doesn't compliment the film (I guess it could have been far worse--oh,say a musical score by Andrew Lloyd Webber,for example). That aside, Darfur Now is another addition to the growing ranks of quality documentaries that are playing out these days.
