It's been awhile since I posted a documentary review - mostly because of Undude's antagonism toward review of documentaries. But, this film compelled me to re-post a review. This is a very powerful documentary about 6 individuals (including a rebel fighter, a celebrity, an activist, an aid worker, an ICC prosecutor, and refugee camp organizer) living and, for some, seeking to correct one of the biggest human tragedies of our time.
The stories revolve around 2 central plot-lines: the ICC's prosecution of individuals responsible for the genocide; and the efforts to get California to divest from Sudan. The film features cameos from Hillary Clinton, John McCain, the Governator, and George Clooney, but the power doesn't come from celebrity power, it comes from the struggles of ordinary men and women touched by tragedy. It's not something one can take their eyes away from this film.
One downside of watching this documentary, it will probably lead you to ask the question: what the heck am I doing with my life? And for me, I didn't like the answer.
