Sudan’s Bloody Uprising
Dr Namariq is one of the thousands of protesters that went out on the streets of Sudan demanding the fall of dictator Omar al-Bashir’s regime. But even after the former president was ousted, his regime stayed in place. The protests continued, and a historic sit-in started.
Sudan: Iron and Fire follows Dr. Namariq, a young Sudanese doctor who joined the protests in early April, as she first celebrates the uprising’s success only to watch it collapse in the face of terrifying violence.
Filmmaker Namak Khoshnaw travels with Dr. Namariq from Khartoum to Atbara. Known as the ‘City of Iron and Fire’ it is where the protests to topple the former dictator began.
On June 3rd the regime’s RSF military forces launched a vicious attack on unarmed protestors in the sit-in leaving over a hundred dead and scores raped and beaten.
