10 Of The Best Documentary Films about Africa

Written by Mark Rausch


1. God Grew Tired of Us (2006)

The Lost Boys of Sudan are the 25,000-plus who fled the wars in Sudan. They are only a fraction of the colossally displaced population. In this moving documentary, we follow John, Daniel and Panther — three men from the South Sudan who face perilous adjustment issues with immigration, employment, bigotry, and assimilation in their new lives in New York City. All are heartbroken and damaged from leaving behind loved ones in Africa. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, this documentary is narrated by Nicole Kidman.
