Lost Boys of Sudan

Friday, October 9 - Monday, October 12, 2009

Winner of an Independent Spirit Award, LOST BOYS OF SUDAN follows two extraordinary young men orphaned by the Sudanese civil war as they come to America, a place some Sudanese call “Heaven” because of the hope and opportunity it offers. For Peter and Santino, their first life-altering year is full of abundance and alienation, safety and loneliness. For the viewer, the film offers a gripping and sobering peek into the myth of the American Dream.
