Revolution From Afar

In 2019, after protests across Sudan resulted in the fall of 30-year dictator Omar al-Bashir, the military took over and shut down the Internet, leaving those abroad to plea for peaceful transition to civilian government. An ocean away, Sudanese-American poets and musicians gather in major American cities to perform in support of the revolution. At the heart of the film is a conversation around identity, belonging, and the uncertain future of Sudan, from which the artists have been physically cut off.
