East of Sudan is a 1964 British adventure film directed by Nathan Juran and featuring Anthony Quayle, Sylvia Syms and Derek Fowlds.

Plot[edit]

During the height of the Mahdist insurrection in the Anglo-Egyptian Sudan, veteran colonial private Baker teams up with freshly arrived gentleman Murchison, trying to evacuate from southern Barash the emir's daughter Asua and her British governess, Margret Woodville. Over the course of the journey, the group find themselves in perilous dangers of the Nile and its banks. Facing off nature, Arab slavers and a backward Negro tribe they prey on, they are saved by King Gondoko's missionary-raised brother Kimrasi, who then joins them. Once in the capital Khartoum, they find the revolt has reached it and the men join the fight...
