The Robert Strauss Center for International Security and Law and mtvU will be hosting a screening of the documentary film Darfur Now on Tuesday, November 6, 2007 at 7:00pm in CPE 2.214 (View Map). This is a special sneak preview screening, ten days prior to the film’s commercial opening in Texas. The film's director, Ted Braun, will be in attendance and will participate in a Q&A session after the screening.

According to the film’s producers, Darfur Now is a story of hope in the midst of one of humanity's darkest hours – a call to action for people everywhere to end the catastrophe unfolding in Darfur, Sudan. In this documentary, the struggles and achievements of six different individuals from inside Darfur and around the world bring to light the tragedy in Sudan and show how the actions of one person can make a difference to millions.
