Rebel groups began fighting with the government of Sudan in 2003, accusing the government of oppressing Darfur's non-Arab population. What followed was a government campaign of ethnic cleansing against Darfur's non-Arabs, resulting in hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths and the indictment of president Omar al-Bashir for genocide and crimes against humanity. Based on true events, "In Darfur" follows three intertwined lives at a camp for displaced persons in Darfur, including an aid worker saving and protecting lives, a journalist pursuing a "front page" story and a Darfuri woman looking for safety. Experience the thought-provoking, searing account at Houston's Landing Theatre @ the Docks, which asks what the cost would be for the world to intervene to save others, and what the cost would be if it does not.
