GOD GREW TIRED OF US tells the remarkable story of the Lost Boys of Sudan.

In 1987, with explosive violence in the Sudan because of civil war, 25,000 young boys between the ages of three and thirteen fled from their homes, beginning a five-year trek that ultimately led the survivors--many of the boys died along the treacherous journey through the desert--to a United Nations refugee camp in Kakuma, Kenya. Nicknamed the Lost Boys after the characters in J. M. Barrie's PETER PAN, they formed a tight community in the camp, though they still had little food and shelter and a bleak future. In 2001, 38,000 of the boys, now grown into men, were selected to be relocated to the United States, where they were to be given a new lease on life.

Writer-director Christopher Quinn and codirector Tommy Walker closely follow three of the men as they try to make a go of it in what for them is a whole new world--they never before had flown in an airplane, shopped in a supermarket, or turned on an electric light. Daniel Abol Pach and Panther Blor move into Pittsburgh, while John Bul Dau is sent to Syracuse, where he struggles to maintain his African identity amid this very different society. With new dreams and opportunities, the Lost Boys attempt to adapt to their unique situation, but they never forget the friends and family still trapped in Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, and other parts of Africa.

Narrated by Nicole Kidman, and with Brad Pitt serving as one of the executive producers, GOD GREW TIRED OF US is a powerful, compelling, important documentary.
