Nelson Mandela may not have defeated South African apartheid, but his story mobilized worldwide protest, which explains the focus on individuals in this effective 2007 advocacy film about the genocide in Darfur. Writer-director Ted Braun profiles six people involved in the crisis, ranging from victims (a farmer now living in a refugee camp, a mother who lost her child and now wanders western Darfur as an armed rebel) to international players (a famine relief worker, a prosecutor for the International Criminal Court at the Hague) to political activists (Don Cheadle, who was radicalized by his role in Hotel Rwanda). But the most inspiring tale belongs to Adam Sterling, a UCLA student who, prompted by nothing more than simple conscience, launched a successful ballot initiative for divestment of California state funding in Sudan.
