The Devil Came on Horseback is a
gripping and ultimately quite a depressing tale of the atrocities
happening in Sudan. Masterfully directed by Annie Sundberg & Ricki
Stern, The Devil Came on Horseback revolves around Brian Steidle, a
former marine who has become an observer for the African Union of
this crumbling nation.
During his time as an observer, he witnessed the systematic genocide
of Sudan's black African citizens in Darfus by the Arab controlled
government. To compound the situation, the government turned a blind
eye to the acts of murder, torture and rape against these tribes and
This movie follows Steidle's journey from observer to activist that
uses actual photos and footage from his time in this cancerous and
humanitarian disaster. The images are quite overwhelming and
depressing which ignites an anger inside you as the world just
watched these atrocities occur across Sudan.
Presented in 16:9 widescreen with Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo, the
video and audio quality is exceptional which truly draws you into
this amazing world of hours where man watches others die.
