Straight from HBO:

Paul Freedman's Sand and Sorrow will debut on HBO this December. Executive-produced and narrated by George Clooney, the HBO Documentary Films presentation details the historical events that have given rise to an Arab-dominated government's willingness to kill and displace its own indigenous African people, and examines the international community's "legacy of failure" in responding to such profound crimes against humanity.

Offering unparalleled access to a contingent of African Union peacekeeping forces, Sand and Sorrow provides an exclusive look at the situation on the ground as this disturbing chapter in human history unfolds.
