Overview

Darfur Now

Ted Braun's documentary about Darfur showcases how six different people have each done their part in order to help stop the genocide in the region and bring humanitarian relief to the millions there who suffer. His subjects include a UCLA student who, with no political experience whatsoever, passes a state bill to stop any money from going to Sudan; the prosecutor of the International Criminal Court; Pablo Recalde, a central figure in the World Food Program; and actor Don Cheadle, the star of the movie Hotel Rwanda.

To say that this is an excellent documentary would be a detrimental understatement. This short viewing brings to light a horrendous tragedy that is too often suppressed in western media. It is unreasonably easy to find out about current events in pop culture; such as celebrities with legal issues. However, regarding crises on a humanitarian level, one must almost jump through hoops to get information. It is feasible to say that when more people who are aware of a genocide, the chances of intervention increase. It has been stated that if there were a genocide in Texas today, everyone would do their part to aid relief. Yet today, the world sits by and watches while Black people are exterminated because of their skin color. The U.S. government has acknowledged the acts in the Darfur region of Sudan as genocide. Yet progress is slow. Upon viewing this documentary, people will be compelled to help in some way. Even if it's only donating five dollars or telling a friend.

Darfur Now does a wonderful job demonstrating the impact political policies have on individuals and communities. It provides a holistic outlook on how the choices of a few impact many, not only in the one particular country, but across nations and the globe. I used it for a master's level course to show how national policy impacts individuals, families, and communities in a multitude of ways. It is easy to follow and will keep an conscientious viewers attention. I could have done without George Clooney's bit, but it is what it is. All in all, a well-developed documentary

This is an excellent video to show middle and high school students. They need to be given a prelude description and historical reference dialouge before watching.
