Familiar Voices:
A Reaction to the Crisis in Darfur –
77min

'Familiar Voices' is an independently
financed, feature length, non-profit
documentary covering reactions to the
ongoing crisis in Darfur. Its purpose is to
empower, not overwhelm, its audiences;
to engage those audiences in a
respectful dialogue, rather than wagging
its finger at them; and to help those
audiences clearly understand their
relationship to this crisis. Through voices
and visuals connected with Nobel Peace
Prize winners, soldiers, Darfuri refugees,
celebrities, humanitarian aid workers,
politicians, university level (and fifth-
grade) activists, and others, old
messages regarding responsibility and
hope are delivered in new ways - ones
that are direct, concrete, and accessible.
It includes: interviews throughout the U.S.
and Canada; protests throughout the U.
S.; and footage from South Darfur,
Eastern Chad, and the Central African
Republic
