Darfur Now (2007) PG - 3 Stars

This documentary shows the struggles and achievements of six different people all over the world, doing their part to put an end to the genocide in the region of Darfur and bring humanitarian relief to make a difference to millions.

(George Clooney) and (Don Cheadle) are two celebrities who joined forces with (Adam Sterling) a UCLA student with a passion to not give up his cause till he is gets a state bill signed and passed to stop any money from going to Sudan. Along with the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (Luis Moreno-Ocampo), and (Pablo Recalde), a major head of the World Food Program, they are able to get food shipments flowing into the refugee camps to save the lives of millions of displaced people. In Darfur, (Hejewa Adam) became a rebel, fighting for the cause to regain her land taken away while she watched her son killed.
