Saturday: Madina's Dream

The Sarnia Justice Film Festival will screen Madina's Dream: The Story of Rebels and Refugees Fighting to Survive in Sudan's Nuba Mountains on Saturday, April 23, 2016  at 7pm at the Sarnia Library Theatre.

Here's the film description from the SJFF: "Madina’s Dream is an unflinching and poetic glimpse into a forgotten war.  After decades of civil war, South Sudan achieved its independence from Sudan in 2011. But inside Sudan, the conflict continues. Sudan’s government employs aerial bombings and starvation warfare against the inhabitants of the Nuba Mountains. Hundreds of thousands of civilians have fled to refugee camps in South Sudan or remain trapped in the war zone. Eleven-year-old Madina and countless others dream of a brighter future for their people."

Conversation after the film wll be led by Allyson Larkin, assistant professor in the Social Justice and Peace Studies program at King’s University College at the University of Western Ontario.
