The Art That Escaped, the People Who Remain


The world has spent the last three and a half years at the border of Darfur, at the western edge of Sudan, debating involvement in the escalating massacre and displacement of Darfurians by the government and assorted militias. Humanitarian aid has been scarce, as has media coverage. So three filmmakers crossed that border to capture life in the refugee camps and came up with "Darfur Diaries," a film and book about the situation there, which the Virginia Holocaust Museum is screening Sunday, Nov. 12, at 4 p.m. Filmmaker Jen Marlowe will be on-hand to talk about the crisis, as well as the images she and her team brought back across. And Sudanese refugee and VCU student Awer Bul talks about the artwork that he smuggled over that border. Marlowe also speaks at the new Chop Suey Tuey about the book, Nov. 11 at 1 p.m. Both events are free. 257-5400 or 422-8066. S
