Facing Sudan (90 minutes)

Brian Burns is a seemingly ordinary person. When we
meet him, he is sweeping the floors in a suburban high
school. But looks can be deceiving. Brian has a story to
tell. It is a story of suffering. It is a story of death. It is a
story of refugees running for cover at the ominous sound
of a plane engine. But it is also the story of strength,
courage and hope. It is the story of Sudan. Told through
the eyes of ordinary people, living seemingly ordinary
lives; Facing Sudan is truly about the Sudanese people
struggling to survive. It is the story of the countless
thousands who live day to day in refugee camps. It is the
story of the world's reaction to the atrocities and violence
in that war-torn African nation. The film demonstrates that
seemingly ordinary individuals can do extraordinary things.
A custodian. A housewife. A pediatrician. A grandmother.
Seemingly ordinary individuals. Yet these individuals have
a story to tell. It is the story of Sudan and what it takes to
make a difference there.
