STAND Canada presents Darfur: A Film By Uwe Bolle

By Caitlyn Holroyd

Never Again has been said many times before, but the crisis in Darfur continues, entering its 7th year of extreme violence.

STAND Canada, the country’s leading youth organization for anti-genocide advocacy and activism, was approached a few months ago by the producers of an unreleased film, titled Darfur. Directed by Uwe Boll and starring Billy Zane and Edward Furlong, the film tells the fictional story of a group of journalists in Sudan who attempt to protect a village from the group of militants responsible for raping and killing Darfuri civilians.

Though it is extremely violent and difficult to watch, the film aims to show audiences an example of how serious the crisis in Darfur is. The film will be toured across Canada with screenings in 10 cities to launch STAND’s “Stand for the Dead” campaign.

Darfur will be screened at the Scotiabank Theatre (John & Richmond St.) in Toronto on Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 at the door or online at http://standcanada.org/darfurfilm and the screening will be followed by a Q&A with special guests including MP Olivia Chow.

    hello
    i am a member of one of the little branches of stand canada
    i am also a northern sudanese
    and i feel it is my duty as a sudanese to help my fellow country men and women
    i love the people of kordofan and darfur and nubia and kassala and south sudan
    and i would not tolerate any kind of harm done to them
    they are my family
    i thankyou for showing this movie and inspiring us to help my bueatiful country
    i also want to correct something that seems a bit wrong
    the rebel groups in the movie are pure arabs,
    in real life they are blacks of african and arab origins
    the differance between darfuris and rebel groups is not in genetics, but in culture and traditions
    the sudanese goverment has taken advantage of this small cultural differance and used it to turn tribes against each other in order to gain control of the land’s resources
    they dont love sudan like i do
    they dont love sudan like we do
    they dont love our fellow sudanese the way a sudandese is supposed to love

    all i want to add is
    all sudanese are one, there is no differance between us
    this is a non-democratic goverment
    and it does not represent who we ARE

    And to every sudanese who will read this- ya zol walahi bahibak

    salam
