Facing Sudan now only $6.99

Much has changed in Sudan over the last year.  South Sudan became the world's newest country as it broke away from the north and declared itself the Republic of South Sudan in July.  However, South Sudan is one of the poorest nations in the world today and is rocked by violence---both among its many ethnic groups but also tension with the government of the North has erupted into violence along the border.  Although peace was signed in June, violence there continues as well.  The humanitarian crisis in Darfur continues.

Facing Sudan addressed some of these issues back when it hit the festival circuit in 2007.  The film was made to spread awareness about the situation in both South Sudan and in Darfur.  It provides necessary background information to understanding the conflict and the situation today.

In order to continue the purpose of spreading awareness, Facing Sudan is now available for just $6.99 from Film Baby.  We also have free lesson plans and viewing party materials, as well.
