Visually stunning and contextually provocative, “God Grew Tired of Us” is quite simply one of the most beautiful documentaries I’ve ever seen, and is deserving of its Sundance 2006 Documentary Grand Jury prize. Intelligent, heartbreaking, uplifting, humorous and reverent, the film is an adventure in what it means to be human, and what it takes to survive in the world today, whether it be the Sudan or the United States
