Darfur Documentary on HBO December 6

Thursday, December 6, from 8:00 – 9:45 pm ET/PT, HBO will screen a documentary by Paul Freedman about Darfur, Sand and Sorrow. If you don't have HBO, like me, you can watch a live stream of the full film on the HBO web site December 7-9. George Clooney is the film's narrator and Executive Producer.

Campus Progress and the ENOUGH Project have teamed up to facilitate the organizing of house parties to view and discuss the film. You can find more information about hosting a house party on Campus Progress' web site.

After the film's screening, you can discuss the film, and learn what you can do to help, on a conference call with Darfur activists John Prendergast, Samantha Power, and Nicholas Kristof. You can sign up for the call on the ENOUGH site.
