Mia Farrow gives Darfur research items to UConn

STORRS, Conn.

Farrow, who lives in Connecticut, told The Hartford Courant that the items document songs, dances and other rituals that are in danger of being lost as refugees struggle to survive in camps in that African nation.

The video collection, which spans 35 hours, includes farming method demonstrations, children's stories, wedding ceremonies and other traditions among the Darfuris, who have fought years against genocide and starvation.

The items are being housed at the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center at the University of Connecticut and are available for viewing by researchers and others interested in the research.
