Besides the emerald green banners tacked around the city urging us to “Save Darfur,” texts and films about Sudan’s 1983 civil war and the crippling wave of violence that ensued are slowly educating the public about the country’s plight. Tonight at 7:30, the National Geographic Society’s Grosvenor Auditorium (1600 M Street NW) will screen one such documentary, the finely crafted “God Grew Tired of Us.” It follows three “Lost Boys,” displaced Sudanese men, from a Kenyan refugee camp to resettlement in the U.S. Filmmaker Christopher Quinn and movie lead John Bul Dau will be on hand to host the event. To purchase tickets, priced at $5, visit the box office, call 202/857-7700 or log onto www.nationalgeographic.com/nglive.
