We Are The Ones

During the Second Sudanese Civil War, nearly two million people were killed in what proved to be one of the longest and deadliest wars of the 20th century. In the aftermath of the brutality, the population of South Sudan was left with a shattered infrastructure: a struggling government, few schools, and a health system in crisis.

We are the Ones is a documentary film that tells the stories of Sudanese medical professionals who are trying to re-establish medical care for their people. They fight to prevent illness and mend wounds with limited resources while simultaneously struggling with tribal conflicts that permeate the region. These men remain inspired to make positive changes in their communities, and in the process, perhaps, begin to heal their nation.
