Duk County screened at the Lincoln Center in New York City on November 16, 2013. The film was hosted by Telluride MountainFilm on Tour, which also hosted the film’s world premiere in Telluride last May. John Dau and other doctors from the South Sudan team were there for the occasion. Dau, one of the Lost Boys of Sudan, spoke of ‘waging peace’ in his nascent country. David Holbrooke led a 30 minute discussion with the team on stage after the screening.
Duk County has won six awards since May including Best Documentary (Boulder), Best Short Film (Crested Butte) and was the recipient of the Indomitable Spirit Award and Moving Mountains Prize at Telluride MountainFilm.

It is still an adventurous time in the Arab world, but the Kingdom of Jordan remains a calm epicenter in the heart of the Middle East. It’s also a remarkable blend of world-class outdoor adventure and important historical destinations. My favorite? The fiery Wadi Rum desert, where you sweat as you plunge-step up a colossal dune of scorched red sand for a 360-degree view of Biblical desert.
If you decide to go to Jordan—and you should—here is my must-see list, from the casual eco-tourist to the saltiest outdoor adventurer.
