The Two Sudans is a collaborative web based film project established in 2013 by a group of young filmmakers from Sudan and Germany. It features a series of short films documenting the lives of people in Sudan and South Sudan following the separation. The official premiere was in Berlin, Germany and in Nairobi, Kenya at the Goethe-Institute in 2013 and can be viewed through the official webpage. The playlist for the Stories of South Sudan series is as follows:
Ugandan-born, South Sudanese author Taban Lo Liyong was the first African to graduate with a Masters in creative writing at the University of Iowa in 1968. He has collaborated with the renowned Kenyan author, Ngugi wa Thiong’o, both of whom remain East Africa’s most prolific and influential writers. Liyong has been criticized for distancing himself from South Sudan politically, although following independence he has served the position of Acting Vice Chancellor at the Juba University in South Sudan. Another Nigger Dead is a collection of poems and one of his many publications: including the African Writers Series, a series featuring numerous famed authors such as Chinua Achebe and Ama Ata Aidoo.
