About the Film:
Part of the Seventh Art Stand
Directed by Christopher Quinn. USA. 2007. English.
In 1987, Sudan’s Muslim government pronounced death to all males in the Christian south: 27,000 boys fled to Ethiopia on foot. In 1991, they were forced to flee to Kenya; 12,000 survived to live in a U.N. camp in Kakuma. Filmmaker Christopher Quinn observes the ordeal of three Sudanese refugees—Jon Bul Dau, Daniel Abul Pach, and Panther Bior—as they try to come to terms with the horrors they experienced in their homeland, while adjusting to their new lives in the United States.
A Skype discussion with the filmmakers follows the film.
