According to Variety, George Clooney is set to narrate (and executive produce) the HBO documentary Sand and Sorrow. The film is the product of Paul Freedman, who follows Nicholas Kristof, John Prendergast, and Samantha Power through the region as they attempt to raise awareness of what’s happening in Sudan.
“Sand and Sorrow” follows the history of the strife in Sudan’s Darfur region, where the Arab-controlled government has killed and displaced much of the indigenous African population. It also looks at the international community’s slow reaction to the crisis.
The documentary is slated to air in December and will also include interviews with Elie Wiesel, Barak Obama, Sam Brownback, Minni Minawi.
