Experiences in Africa

My class watched a documentary called God Grew Tired of Us I thought it was a very interesting movie. It took place in Sudan in 1987. The boys in it were named "the lost boys" there were 27,000 of them and they had to flee to Ethiopia, because the government would have killed them if they didn't.

In the movie God Grew Tried of Us and the book A Long Way Gone there are lots of similarities and differences. In the video the people were from the country Sudan and they were called the lost boys. In the book the characters were from the country Sierra Leone and they either were soldiers or rebels.
