  • ""Follows two Sudanese refugees on an extraordinary journey from Africa to America. Orphaned as young boys in one of Africa's cruelest civil wars, Peter Dut and Santino Chuor survived lion attacks and militia gunfire to reach a refugee camp in Kenya along with thousands of other children. From there, remarkably, they were chosen to come to America. Safe at last from physical danger and hunger, a world away from home, they find themselves confronted with the abundance and alienation of contemporary American suburbia"--Internet movie database, as viewed on January 3, 2007."

  • "We follow two Sudanese refugees on an extraordinary journey from Africa to America. Orphaned as young boys in one of Africa's cruelest civil wars they reach a refugee camp in Kenya along with thousands of other children. Safe at last from physical danger and hunger, in America, a world away from home, these two find themselves confronted with the abundance and alienation of contemporary American suburbia. Sudan has been ravaged by civil war for 47 years. Two million people were killed and more than 4 million displaced, so a group of 20,000 young boys flee into the bush, wandering the desert seeking safe harbor, ultimately finding safe-haven in UN refugee camps in Ethiopia and Kenya. With peace in Sudan unforeseeable, the U.S. government decided to bring the "Lost Boys" to America. The film begins in the Kakuma Kenya Refugee Camp where Peter and Santino have made the U.S. travel list posted in the camp twice a month. Arriving in Houston, Texas, Peter and Santino begin to face the everyday challenges of their new lives: riding the bus, working jobs, and sending money home to Africa. Will the reality of their new lives compare to expectations of the U.S. as the land of education and financial opportunity? The film intimately follows this struggle as they hold on to their traditions and cope with the psychological scars of their past, while helping us look at issues of immigration, foreign aid, race and cultural identity - VID 962."@en
