Lost boy of Sudan

“Lost Boys of Sudan” tells the journey of two young Sudanese refugees from Africa to the United States. Following one of the bloodiest and most violent civil wars in Africa, Peter Dut and Santino Chuor have become orphans. They managed to survive the attacks of the guerrillas and to reach a refugee camp in Kenya, just like thousands of other Sudanese children. As teenagers, the boys have accepted to participate to a programme of the United Nations that will take them to the United States, in search for a better life.
On the other side of the world, sheltered from hunger and from the dangers of the jungle, the two boys will have to confront themselves with the opulence and alienation of Northern American suburbs. This film won a prize for the best foreign film at the San Francisco International Film Festival.
