Event Details

Join The Center for Investigative Reporting, United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and Humanity United for the West Coast premiere of “Madina’s Dream,” followed by a discussion with the filmmaker and experts on Sudan on Wednesday, Sept. 2.

Featuring one-of-a-kind footage and gripping testimonials to explore the human cost of conflict, the film offers a stirring portrayal of the crisis in Sudan, where the museum has long sounded the alarm about the threat of genocide.

Civilians in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan are facing the disastrous consequences of the ongoing war between the Sudanese government and rebel forces. The Sudanese government’s daily indiscriminate bombing raids have killed scores of civilians and have targeted civilian infrastructure. The government is purposefully blocking necessary humanitarian assistance and preventing international peacekeepers from protecting civilians.

In order to call greater attention to this largely underreported and forgotten crisis, the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Simon-Skjodt Center for the Prevention of Genocide and Humanity United worked with award-winning filmmaker Andrew Berends to support the production of “Madina's Dream.” Watch the trailer.
