God Grew Tired of Us
Imagine never using electricity and then being given your own apartment in the USA. What questions would you have? How many things would be completely foreign to you? Perhaps one of my most favorite documentaries of all time, God Grew Tired of Us features the journey of several men from Sudan to the United States. Thankfully these gentlemen have people to guide them. Their first night in their apartment they are shown how to turn on lights, how to use the bathroom and are introduced to potato chips for the very first time.
You’ll fall in love with each man as he tries to find his place in his new world. Most heartwarming of all is what these men truly value. Can money buy happiness for men who have never had a paying job? What would you miss the most from your homeland?
