    It is not an easy film to watch, nor should it be. It is, however, beautifully made. Annie Sundberg and Ricki Stern, the co-directors, wrangle their information and lay it out clearly, vividly and with a sharp sense of focus. show more

    Chronicles the slaughter in Darfur. Exploitative play on the horror of naked aggression. The lesson of the vast history of such injustice is that weakness invites aggression, so be strong or perish. Nations that can organize into productive strength with military might survive. Other nations and groups that remain weak are trampled.
