Ger unite with his mother after 18 yearsGer Duany Ger DuanyGer Duany is an actor, model, filmmaker, based in the United States. He left his native home when things became apart, just like the meaning of his name – Ger – when things become apart.

Fate led him to his debut on the Hollywood silver screen where he played a refugee in the movie;”I (Heart) Huckabees.” Director David O. Russell said he wanted someone who had endured the real life experience of being a refugee to play the role. He later had a very important role in the 2011 drama Restless City.

In 2010, he produced and starred in the documentary Ger: To Be Separate, about his search for his family, after 18 years apart. He told the story of his long journey from a war child to a refugee to a Hollywood actor and a model, and the story of his return to South Sudan, to vote for the first time and celebrate the country’s newly acquired independence on July 9, 2011.
