GOD GREW TIRED OF US

/ /
Award-winning documentary about three Sudanese men who try to find a new life as refugees in the USA

In the late 1980s, 25,000 Sudanese "lost boys" – some just toddlers – marched barefoot over thousands of miles of barren desert, seeking safe haven from the brutal civil war raging in their homeland. Half died from bombing raids and starvation; the others reside together in a refugee camp in Kenya, with few prospects. Recently, the US invited some of the boys to settle in America. Moving and mind-expanding, the documentary GOD GREW TIRED OF US follows three unforgettable young men on their unbelievable odyssey in a strange New World.
