George Clooney is set to narrate the HBO documentary Sand and Sorrow. According to Variety, he will also be producing the Paul Freeman project which revolves around the crisis in Darfur.
The documentary reveals the history of the Sudan's troubled Darfur region. There, the Arab-controlled government has exterminated a great portion of the African Population. The piece will also look at the international community's delayed reaction to the problems occurring in the region.
Freedman stated, "The tragic events taking place in Darfur unfortunately are a continuation of the lack of response from the international community in protecting millions of innocent lives from their own government. Without humanitarian aid and political resolve from the U.S. and other countries, these displaced people from Darfur could suffer the same fate as those innocents from Eastern Europe, Cambodia and Rwanda."
The film will premier in December, just in time for Christmas dinner. Interviews include author Elie Wiesel, Senators Barak Obama and Sam Brownback and rebel leader Minni Minawi.
