This insightful documentary by Jen Marlowe puts a human face on the tragedy in Sudan, vividly illuminating the country’s struggle for peace and stability. We witness the emotional journeys of Gabriel Bol, Koor, and Garang, who, as small children fled their villages in South Sudan because of the devastating civil war. Growing up in refugee camps and resettling in the United States in 2001, the trio, now in their twenties, embarks on a voyage back to Sudan to discover whether their homes and families have survived, as well as to learn about the current political situation. After the screening, filmmaker Marlowe, previously responsible for the acclaimed Darfur Diaries: Message from Home, will discuss with her subjects the current situation in south Sudan.
