Movie Info

Peabody Award-winning filmmaker Paul Freedman directs this sobering documentary about the genocidal crisis in the Darfur region of Sudan. Freedman followed a group of African Union peacekeeping forces on a journey through the area, observing the 2.5 million people displaced from their homes by brutal violence, and forced to stay in the squalor of temporary camps. Analyzing the cultural, political, and historical background of the area, the film examines how the government in Sudan was able to turn so ruthlessly against its own indigenous people, creating what would most likely go down in history as one of humanity's most shameful moments.more

Audience Reviews for Sand and Sorrow


One of the finest documentaries that I have ever seen. This film brought the Darfur Conflict home. Sure., it was very one sided but isn't most documentaries that way? You could tell just by the tone of George Clooney's voice how much this conflict and genocide meant to him. The direction by Paul Freedman was excellent. Very hard hitting and not for the faint of heart. The world should get together, put aside their differences, and help Darfur without worrying about what happens afterwards. Of course since the Sudan does not have any major oil reserves, most of the world will stand idly by while the country tears itself apart. Very sad and powerful film.


Most in-depth documentary about Darfur and the history leading up to the current situation there that I have seen yet.

Darfur, and all the murders taken place there recently, is front and center in this documentary narrated(and executive produced) by George Clooney
