Human Rights Film Series Presents Darfur Story
Duquesne University presents a free screening of Sand and Sorrow as part of its third annual Human Rights Film Series, Injustice and Indifference. Directed by Paul Freedman, Sand and Sorrow follows a contingent of African Union peacekeeping forces in Darfur as a tragic chapter in history unfolds. While the heroic men and women of this undermanned and underfunded mission brave harsh conditions and unfettered violence, as many as 2.5 million displaced individuals have no choice but to settle in squalid camps to wait and hope.
The screening will be preceded by remarks from David Rosenberg of the Pittsburgh Darfur Emergency Coalition.
The Human Rights Film Series is presented by the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures at Duquesne University.
When: Monday, Jan. 25, at 7 p.m.
Where: The Power Center Ballroom, Duquesne University, Forbes Avenue at Chatham Square, Pittsburgh.
Information: Admission is free. For more information, call 412.396.6415 or visit www.duq.edu/humanrights.
