  • Darfur Now

      For all its flaws, director Ted Braun’s Darfur Now gets the word out. Darfur, in western Sudan, is a region brimming with weapons, flooded with oil, and starved for food. At the moment, hundreds of thousands of civilians have been slaughtered, raped and terrorized by government-funded Janjaweed militias. The United States and the United Nations should be going in there to protect these people, and it’s doing very little. And if there isn’t much of a narrative arc there, it’s not Ted Braun’s fault. There are grittier, bloodier and more informative documentaries about Darfur. Again, that may be to Braun’s credit. Although Darfur Now paints a grim picture, it’s a documentary about Darfur the whole family can watch without terrorizing the kids. It may even help endow them with a sense of political responsibility.
