Mia Farrow talks about her new project The Darfur Archives. She spent four weeks in refugee camps in Chad in January and February collecting oral histories and filming traditional dances, song, stories. She’s collecting artifacts too for a future museum in Darfur dedicated to the ways of life that have been lost there.
You can read more about the project at Mia Farrow’s blog.
And here’s a story I did in 2007 about one of Farrow’s many trips to Chad.
And these days there’s lots of discussion of the history of Darfur at Alex de Waal’s blog Making Sense of Darfur.
