Description:
  'Familiar Voices' is a feature length 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 activists, and others, old messages regarding responsibility and hope are delivered in new ways - ones that are direct, concrete, and accessible.


Photo: The photograph featured here is a rare representation of three actual janjaweed militiamen - taken by activist and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Mia Farrow at great risk to her own life.
