A Journey to Darfur
In April 2006 veteran jouranlist Nick Clooney was asked by his son, George, to accompany him to the troubled region of Darfur. The goal was to shine a light on the modern day genocide occurring in this remote region of Africa. They went unannounced; without press, without escort and without security, just Nick, George and cameraman, Mike Herron, a personal friend. This documentary is an account of their journey, the stories of unimaginable violence that have befallen the Darfurians and the courage of the aid workers who struggle to provide relief to 200,000 refugees. The documentary also provides background on the crisis ad the efforts of individuals and groups to stand up and say, "Not on our watch!" 2007. DVD only.
