Released:

Rating:
PG
Darfur Now follows six people as they work toward ending the suffering in Western Sudan's war-ravaged Darfur. Since 2003, the region has been the site of relentless and systematic genocide that has killed hundreds of thousands and displaced millions. Most of the six million residents now live in refugee camps. While they follow different paths, the six people pursue a common cause to address the crisis in the region. Luis Moreno-Ocampo is working toward the prosecution of Sudanese authorities. A young American named Adam Sterling pursues legislation targeting companies with interests in Sudan. Pablo Recalde provides food and saves lives while Ahmed Mohammad Abakar rallies those who have been displaced and now live in his camp. Hejewa Adam is a female rebel training to fight the Janjaweed, the armed gunmen from Arab tribes. Actor and author Don Cheadle works with actor George Clooney to raise awareness about the situation in Darfur.
