Clooney, Cheadle, Ocean's Thirteen Help Darfur

Clooney, Cheadle, Ocean's Thirteen Help Darfur

George Clooney continues to use his star power for good. He recently produced and narrated a documentary about the atrocities in the Sudan's western region Darfur, titled Sand and Sorrow, which will be screened at a film festival in Monaco.


What's more, the premiere events for Ocean's Thirteen will help raise money for relief efforts in Darfur. Ocean's Thirteen producer Jerry Weintraub is throwing a launch party for the humanitarian aid organization Not On Our Watch (also the title of Don Cheadle's book) later this month, and benefit premieres for Ocean's Thirteen will be held in Las Vegas and Chicago. This is such an excellent idea: taking big-budget movie premieres and using them to do good rather than using them to bring more attention to an already heavily promoted movie.

Don Cheadle was prompted to write his book Not On Our Watch after filming Hotel Rwanda and hearing firsthand accounts of genocide in Rwanda. Now, Cheadle is committed to spreading awareness of similar horrors occurring in Darfur.
