About the Movie
In this in-depth documentary, Academy Award-nominee Don Cheadle ("Hotel Rwanda," "Crash") examines genocide in Sudan's western region and takes a closer look at the consequences of the conflict between the Sudanese government sponsored militia group known as Janjaweed and the various rebel groups that are comprised of mostly civilians. The results are hundreds of thousands of deaths and millions of people displaced throughout neighboring countries seeking refuge. With this huge crisis taking place, nations have been slow to aide and assist the suffering civilians, but have been slowly coming to aide. This film is a call to action for people everywhere to help stop the genocide in Darfur, as it follows the struggles and achievements of six very different individuals bring to light the situation in Darfur and illustrate the absolute need to get involved.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: By showing the struggles and efforts of about half a dozen people, it puts a human face on the tragedy.
Fresh: This is the kind of film that doesn't end after the credits roll, and it's a gold-star example for what a documentary should do: inspire.
Fresh: At 99 minutes, the documentary presents a quick but thorough lesson.
Rotten: A disquieting, and somewhat disjointed, call to arms.
God help us all!
You only need to read the two other reviews here to see what good people are up against. One has nothing to say but I can get the movie cheaper, and other is looking for more work hired killers.
i have been to africa and seen these people and what they are going through and it breaks my heart that the world SWORE to never let something like this happen again. and now it is happening right under their noses, and they wont get up and do something. i wish more people knew that they could make a difference.
Darfur.... have been there in person a couple of times
This Movie-Documentary shows the grim reality of life in certain parts of Sudan... I will say this I won't donate a dime for this cause. **With Private Intervention from PMC’s (Private Military Corporation’s ) Sudan’s Chaos can be ended in under 5 months. This is what needs to be done, companies such as Blackwater, Dyncorp, Triple Canopy could end the slaughter of the Sudanese people and take the war directly to these so called Devil on Horseback thugs. The American and Coalition Military forces will never go help out. (To much politics circulating in D.C.) such as protecting America from Terrorism haha, heck America can’t even secure it’s own borders How the heck are they going to win this War ? BTW that is whole another subject...but wait there is Oil in Sudan.. ah an excuse to go into Sudan vs actually helping the people. China is already there as Well. Hopefully the publics outrage can help make this happen by sending in mercenaries, hired guns, PMC’s to go make a difference without politics getting in the way. Call these Private Firms whatever you Want to, they can make a difference. To the lost people who don’t know that Modern Day Mercenaries still Exist just Google PMC’s in Sudan. Eliminate the threat allowing NGO’s, International Red Cross, and other organization’s to help these people out., because right now a lot of them are being targets by local militas. If I had the funding I’d assemble a team, I have the resources and logistical means to make this happen.. the Sudanese Government the majority of them are a bunch of crooks, most of your donation$ go to feed the local militia. I’m pretty sure the filmmaker of this board can support what I say about PMC’s being deployed in Sudan and a lot of my opinions regarding the Sudanese Gov’t... I would ask Mr. Clooney there for a large donation to make this happen.
