DAR FUR – WAR FOR WATER

Synopsis

Dar Fur – War for Water is about a mission, that Tomo Križnar, a human rights activist and (former) Slovenian President Janez Drnovsek’s special emissary in Darfur, made.

While Kriznar presents Slovenian peace initiative to various fractions of Sudanese Liberation Army, he films on camera very emotional and priceless talks with main rebel leaders and with civilians. This is the first film about Darfur, which enables the rest of the World to have an insight into mentality of the rebels in Darfur and events, that took place there from February to June 2006. The documentary gives us the answer, why the peace, which was signed in Abudja in Nigeria between the Sudanese governement and the only signatory on the other side, self-proclaimed SLA leader, Minni Minawi, was obviously just o political charade, which still goes on today.
