HOME."                                      Documentary and
lecture with filmmaker JEN
MARLOWE                                                     **THIS
THURSDAY APRIL 6TH** 7PM, WILLIAMS 301

  "DARFUR DIARIES" is a remarkable film/lecture program -- with
a screening of the documentary film "DARFUR DIARIES: MESSAGE
FROM HOME" -- conducted by Jen Marlowe, one of the three
filmmakers, followed by a Q&A session.  "Darfur Diaries" gives a
first hand account of the current crisis in Darfur, Sudan.  In
October and November 2004, after watching woefully inadequate media
coverage ont he crisis in Darfur, Sudan, a team of three independent
filmmakers trekked to Darfurian refugee camps in eastern Chad and,
with the help of the rebel movement, snuck across the border into
Darfur.  Aisha Bain, Jen MArlowe, and Adam Shapiro met hundreds of
Darfurians.  They interviewed refugees and displaced poeple,
civilians and fighters resisting the Sudanese government, teachers,
students, parents, children, and community leaders.  The documentary
"Darfur Diaries: Message from Home" chronicles the history, hopes,
and fears of the people of Darfur and the tragedy they are living.
