An amplified focus on the genocide in Darfur has drawn international attention away from tragedies occurring in south Sudan, filmmaker Jen Marlowe said at a panel discussion Tuesday evening.
"The peace process that was started [in South Sudan] ... has been allowed to slide back into what looks like a slide back into civil war," Marlowe said.
Dave Eggers, author and founder of literary journal McSweeney's; Karim Chrobog, founder of 18th Street Films; and Marlowe presented projects focusing on the "lost boys" of south Sudan.
