GOD GREW TIRED OF US: THE STORY OF LOST BOYS OF SUDAN
Dir. Christopher Dillon Quinn (USA: 2006), 89 mins.

God Grew Tired of Us follows 3 of the 25 000 “lost boys of Sudan,” John Bul Dau, Daniel Pach and Panther Bior. These boys escaped Sudan in the 1980’s by walking thousands of miles for 5 years to leave their homeland conflicted with war. Along the way thousands died from different causes including starvation, dehydration, murder and war. From first escaping Sudan, and then from Ethiopia, the boys found safety in Kenya. The film follows the 3 boys as they leave many of the other refugees to come to the United States. The boys are thrown into a new culture and forced to adapt, but do not forget about helping the others they left behind in Kenya. The film looks at the boys new lives in a brand new country, how it has changed them and what they are doing to try to support their friends and loved ones.

The film was narrated by Oscar winning actress Nicole Kidman and was executive produced by Brad Pitt. At the 2006 Sundance Film Festival the film won 2 awards; The Grand Jury Prize and the Audience Award in the category of Independent Film Competition: Documentary. At the 2006 International Documentary Association Awards, Christopher Dillion Quinn won Emerging Documentary Filmmaker for God Grew Tired of Us.
