This is a project to make a short film to inspire a new generation. Based upon a talk by the same name, Our Sudan will encourage young Sudanese to think differently about themselves and about their future, inspiring them - “to believe that the future is not a matter of what will be but what could, that it is a choice and it is theirs to make.”
What is "Our Sudan"?
Our Sudan tells the story of a generation of young men and women raised in a world of great tumult and change in which the dream of an older age seems to have been lost. The talk presents a new perspective, offering a celebration of Sudan’s promise and calling upon young people to “dream a new dream, the dream of our generation.”
Why it is important to make this film
Sudan is often associated with poverty and conflict, but there is another side to the country, one that is rarely shown, a place with a long and proud history, great natural wealth, and enormous human potential.
Peoples' sense of what is possible is key to unlocking this potential. Sudan’s youth need to start to re-imagine Sudan and its future - to believe that things can be different and that it is in their power to make that difference.
