THE DEVIL CAME ON HORSEBACK is a documentary that attempts to expose the tragedy taking place in Darfur, Sudan. Seen through the eyes of an American witness, who has since returned to the US to take action to stop it, it uses the exclusive photographs and takes the viewer on an emotionally charged journey into the heart of Darfur.
From the first hand testimony of former US Marine Captain Brian Steidle, who had access to parts of the country that no journalist could penetrate; he was unprepared for what he would witness and experience, including being fired upon, taken hostage and being unable to intervene to save the lives of young children.
Ultimately frustrated by the inaction of the international community, Steidle resigned and returned to the US to expose the images and stories of lives systematically destroyed.
