Mark Brecke’s 2007 They Turned Our Desert Into Fire is a powerful feature documentary that asks how the world can continue to look away whilst the people of Darfur suffer daily atrocities. When we spoke to Mark at the end of 2008, he expressed his wish that the film be viewed and the Darfur issue discussed far and wide so I’m very pleased to see that They Turned Our Desert Into Fire will finally have its London premiere at this week’s World Photography Festival & Sony Photography Awards on Wednesday 27th at 11.15 – 13.00 and 18.00 – 19.45.

If you’re in the area and can make it I urge you to go along, get educated and make your feelings heard.
