brad-angelina-darfur-now-premiere-09.jpgBrad Pitt and Angelina Jolie attended the premiere of the upcoming film Darfur Now last night in New York City. The film addresses the ever-present conflict in the Sudan as seen through the experiences of six people. Variety had this to say,

“Conscientiously upbeat and shiny, “Darfur Now” takes a tactical approach in addressing the ongoing African genocide: Present the appallingly grim situation in Sudan through the rosy lens of activism and political awakening. Star wattage provided by Don Cheadle and George Clooney could draw audiences unfamiliar with the crisis, while slowly increasing awareness might translate into ticket sales and letters of outrage to congressmen.”

Clooney and Cheadle have made the Darfur crisis their personal cause; with books, movies, and rallies attended and supported by the two stars. Pitt, Damon, and a host of other actors have also devoted time to making sure the tragedy is addressed. Having Darfur Now hit theaters is a great opportunity to involve more Americans and pressure the world to do something now. It will be released November 2nd. You can find out more on IMDB.
