The past year has given us two searing portraits of the human crisis in Darfur: Darfur Now and The Devil Came on Horseback. Tonight on HBO, a worthy third film joins them. In Sand and Sorrow, director Paul Freedman and narrator George Clooney follow John Prendergast, Samantha Power and Nicholas Kristof as they explore the tragedy of the genocide in Sudan. They journey through refugee camps on the Chad-Sudan border, visit mass graves inside Darfur itself and even travel to the U.S. Senate to speak on behalf of the innocent dead. Senators Barack Obama and Sam Brownback are interviewed as is Nobel Laureate Elie Wiesel and many others.

In an effort to broaden the reach of the documentary, Campus Progress has created a web page dedicated to setting up house parties to watch the documentary. Also, the ENOUGH Project has set up a page where you can register to join a conference call with the participants immediately following the screening of the film. Finally, HBO has generously relaxed its normally exclusive broadcast policy by continuously streaming the film in its entirety at hbo.com from Friday, December 7th to Sunday, December 9th. It will also be available on HBO's OnDemand Service through January 7th. Sand and Sorrow is a movie that everyone should see. Do so.
