We recently had the pleasure of meeting Ger Duany. Ger is one of the Lost Boys of Sudan who became a child soldier separated from his family when he was 10. He endured the life of a refugee at camps in Ethiopia and Kenya and, after a tremendous amount of unimaginable struggle and hardship, was brought to the United States at age 14. He now lives in New York City where he is an actor and model.
Award-winning Kenyan filmmaker Wanuri Kahiu and Ger are ready to share his story. The documentary, Ger: To Be Separate, traces Ger’s path from childhood through his July 2011 return to South Sudan to search for his family and celebrate the country’s independence.

To hear a bit from Ger and appreciate the man behind this effort, here is an excellent interview on MukamiTV.
