Christopher Quinn's "God Grew Tired of Us" is a "fish-out-of-water survival story" about three of the Lost Boys of Sudan. In 2001, 3,600 Lost Boys were being sent to the United States to escape the civil wars in their home country, and TV Journalist Quinn decided to follow John, Daniel, and Panther "on their unbelievable odyssey in a strange New World" (as described by Sundance). The young men, now acclimated to their lives in New York and Pennsylvania, came to Sundance in support of the film, which premiered in the Independent Film Competition: Documentary category on Sunday. Both National Geographic and Participant Prods. are looking for a distributor to bring the boys' story to the rest of the world. Anne Thompson reports for Reuters.
