Revolution from Afar-Bentley Brown

Synopsis:  In 2019, after months of protests across Sudan, the military removed thirty-year dictator Omar al-Bashir and cracked down, in a violent fashion, on the civilian sit-in outside its headquarters. The Internet was shut down, leaving those outside Sudan to voice a plea for peaceful transition to civilian government. An ocean away, Sudanese-American poets and musicians, whose families left Sudan for America in decades past, 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 they have been physically cut off. What happens when they can only watch from afar?
