The Devil came on Horseback

Director: Annie Sundberg & Ricki Stern

US ? 2007 ? 85 mins ? Documentary

Darfur in Sudan, is the subject of this gripping documentary, where former US Marine Brian Steidle served for six months as an unarmed military observer for the African Union. With broader access than a journalist, Steidle observed and recorded the systematic destruction of the black African population by the Government backed Janjaweed militia. Frustrated at the inaction of the international community, he resigned and returned to US to expose the images he’d recorded and provoke people into action.
