Description

For hundreds of years Nuba Christians and Muslims have lived together in peace, in the Nuba mountains in Sudan, but now civil war has brought destruction, famine and death. The Nuba hold the government of Sudan responsible for the conflict, saying that the government wants to make Sudan a uniformly Arab and Islamic state, and is resorting to terror, violence and even genocide to do so. This film documents the Nuba's struggle for recognition of their basic human rights and for a life free of persecution and attack.
