Clash of Cultures

Since independence, more and more young South Sudanese from all over the world return to their country. Conflict among them is inevitable.

Director Mary Kadi Manoah

»The idea for CLASH OF CULTURES came to me through personal experiences in the time after the signing of the peace agreement. Since independence, young people in South Sudan who had lived abroad before face attacks on their cultural affiliation. My fictional short film is based on these conflicts.«
