Ending the Nuba Genocide is a highly informative, thought provoking, and extremely moving documentary about the latest humanitarian disaster in Sudan.
With a fine blend of interviews with survivors of the aerial and ground attacks against the Nuba Mountains, close-up views of bomb-ravaged villages and the harrowing living conditions that the Nuba Mountains people have been subjected to, this documentary is a must see for anyone who wants to begin to understand and appreciate the dire situation currently faced by the Nuba Mountains people.
The Nuba people reside in one of the most remote and inaccessible places in all of Sudan, the foothills of the Nuba Mountains in central Sudan. At one time the area was considered a place of refuge, bringing together people of many different tongues and backgrounds who were fleeing oppressive governments and slave traders.
Sudanese President Omar al Bashir is already wanted on charges of genocide, crimes against humanity and war crimes by the International Criminal Court for atrocities perpetrated in Darfur.

in spite of everything about kony 2012, the reality is that there is a war in africa. regardless of the documentarists acting privilaged and putting background music, at least they’re trying to DO something, even if it’s only raising awareness! who cares how they do it, or if they take some money from the proceeds? who cares if they make a few discrepancies about who the leaders of the wars are? at least they’re doing something, and regardless, people die everyday all over africa. we need to check our own privilage as a first world country in thinking that kitschy background music or slight exaggeration is a reason to not be fired up about big issues. instead of thinking reading an article and gaining background history will somehow help, instead of being such a skeptic that you become desensitized about the loss of ANY human life, get passionate about a cause and fight for it. do something.
Thanks Jack Meoff. I was just about to write exactly the same comment after giving up at minute 15. I even would have watched it despite the populist kony 2.0 style, but the background music was just too much. Not possible.
I could only get through the first 5 minutes……but I suddenly realized…….this stinks a lot like that phony Kony 2012 scam of a documentary. And…..really? George Gooney? C’mon, this is not worth watching. Are we being made to believe that Africa’s violence and its inability to unify is because of these lowly warlords? Get a clue. The western powers have much to gain from all the chaos in Africa….without it….they CANNOT gain ANYTHING. Do your history. Start here: http://fahamubooks.org/book/?GCOI=90638100164710&fa=sommaire
