At this breakfast meeting, filmmaker Akoul de Mabior will meet Sarah Tobin (CMI), Torunn Wimpelmann (CMI) and Elina Troscenko (UiB) for a discussion on how younger generations, particularly women, approach and see the future of post-conflict societies.

Akoul de Mabior has directed the documentary NO SIMPLE WAY HOME, a personal film about politics, nation building and belonging in South Sudan.

The film opens this year's human rights programme Checkpoints at Bergen International Film Festival (BIFF). It will be shown on 20, 21 and 26 October. We encourage all to attend the screening at Bergen Kino. 

The panel will explore challenges and complexities of building futures in post-conflict societies. What are the gendered dimensions and perspectives on the futures of societies thorn and raged by conflicts? What role does young generations play in post-conflict contexts? The discussion will offer perspectives from Africa, Middle East, Caucasus and Central Asia.


The event is organised in collaboration with Global Research Programme on Inqueality (GRIP) and Bergen International Film Festival
