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.

good but over produced
8 January 2008 | by dbborroughsSee all my reviews

Six intersecting tales that shed light on whats going on in Darfur. This film aims to bring you close to whats going on, and on many levels it succeeds. However while good, its too over produced for my tastes (fancy camera tricks make photos pop, a new agey score, picture perfect cinematography) and I had the unfortunate feeling it was made by well off Americans to make them feel better rather than to actually help solve the problem. Clearly thats the wrong thing to feel and it bothers me that the lasting feeling was not the need to do something, rather how self serving the filmmakers are. That said, Darfur is an important problem.and any means to get the word out is important.
