Thursday, January 26: God Grew Tired of Us

By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – 25,000 Sudanese boys - displaced and orphaned by a brutal civil war - wandered between Sudan and Ethiopia for almost five years. Children ranging in age from three to thirteen years banded together to fight the hardships of starvation, exposure, wild animals, and war. Doug talks to filmmaker Christopher Quinn about his Sundance documentary "God Grew Tired Us." They are also joined by researcher Amadou Niang and James Alic Garang, President of the Lost Boys and Girls Association of Utah, where 120 Sudanese youth have made their new home.

God Grew Tired of Us can still be seen at Sundance:

  • Friday, January 27, 5:30 p.m. at the Holiday Village Cinema II, Park City
  • Saturday, January 28, 1:00 p.m., Screening Room, Sundance Resort
