powerful documentary films and short videos

From the very beginning we have been using media as a way to move people to action. We believe that showing people what is happening in Sudan is much more powerful than simply telling them.


From documentary films to campaign videos, we continue to prove that our belief is the truth. You can find all of our videos by clicking here or watch our favorite and most successful ones below:
