Don't Cry for Me Sudan
In February 2010, a brass band marched through Tonj, a small village in southern Sudan. The guys in the front were holding a picture of a man with an exceptionally bright smile. The villagers could not believe his death and cried for him, the father of Tonj. They are the Dinka, who have struggled tough lives stained with long-lasted war, anger, hatred, poverty, and disease. They risk their lives to protect their families and livestock. However, even the courageous and strong Dinka showed tears, a sign of weakness and shame, at the death of their father. The Father Tae-suk Lee, who passed away at the age of 48 was a father, doctor, teacher, conductor, and architect to Tonj. The Father's unconditional and sacrificial love for Tonj wet the villagers' ever dried eyes, and this beautiful story now comes to the screen to move the world.
