I saw this movie last Sunday at the Amnesty International Film Festival in Amsterdam and I'm still blown away by it. You watch it and you feel so tiny and dejected..because you know you'll go to your warm home in two hours without being able to do something for the millions of people (dead and alive) you are watching.

Paul Freedman did a wonderful job with this movie. Different people with very different views on Darfur are interviewed..sometimes with shocking ideas which make you really think.

This movie should definitely win a couple of awards because it is the truth. All fiction movies are blown away by this one.

26 months to make this documentary he said..what a great person! I hope his next movie will be about Somalia..a million displaced people and 20.000 more each months.. a country that is about to be swept off the map. Go Paul !
