Summary
  • Documentary film about the journey of Nicholas D. Kristof, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, to the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the crisis in Darfur
  • This documentary follows New York Times op-ed columnist Nicholas Kristof as he seeks to bring the plight of the Congo to a seemingly deaf western world. Using the findings of psychological studies as his guide, Kristof seeks to find that single person, that single heart-wrenching story he can use as a focus for his columns, and thus touch well-off and uninvolved western readers. Along with highlighting the suffering and death among Congolese refugees fleeing the ongoing ruthless conflict between several factions and warlords, the film questions humanitarian activism itself--how can those who care about humanitarian needs convince others to care about them as well, and how can they themselves keep from becoming jaded and unflappable?
