Films & debate -
Two short films serve as our window on South Sudan and Uganda: skilfully filmed, each shows us a fragment of reality in these two countries. In South Sudan, we see two businessmen in Juba, and reflect on the importance of the private sector for the development of a stable state. In the north of Uganda, we see how people seek to become food secure, and how Dutch NGO ZOA attempts to support their efforts. Both films highlight people’s own efforts, the need for international assistance, and some of the challenges involved.
This first showing of two short films on South Sudan and Uganda will stir up debate about socio-economic recovery in fragile settings, after or even during conflict: is there a lot to gain, or should we accept the limitations posed by these challenging contexts?
