Films screenings & debates – “WE WERE REBELS” in CEDEJ Khartoum

In order to further promote academic exchanges, CEDEJ Khartoum is continuing its series of documentary films screenings and debates.

In recent years, several documentaries dealing with key themes of interest to CEDEJ Khartoum – Sudan, the 2011 separation, migration issues, the Arab world, etc. – were produced. The content of these films, the approach chosen by the director, as well as the use of video in relation to academic research, are all topics of interest for our PhD students and researchers.

After « Days of Hope » (by the Danish director Ditte Haarløv Johnsen) and “Our Beloved Sudan” (by the Anglo-Sudanese director Taghreed Elsanhouri), we were pleased to organize our third screening in CEDEJ Khartoum (26/05/2016):
