JUBA yeezy boost 350 white uk sale , Sept. 5 (Xinhua) -- The second annual South Sudanese film festival kicked off on Tuesday, seeking to showcase true stories in the youngest country ravaged by more than three years of conflict.
Joyce John Thomas, from the Juba Film Limited, the organizer of the event, told Xinhua in Juba they seek to highlight the cultural and social identity of South Sudanese by awarding the three best movies among the 32 local movies and 37 foreign movies to be screened.
"We believe South Sudanese can make movies that can be shown outside. We want South Sudanese people to share our story and to give solutions and this can be done through the film," Thomas said.
The movies will eventually be screened on the South Sudan national television yeezy boost 350 white uk , she said.
The annual film festival, which started last year, seeks to motivate and grow the nascent creative arts and culture sector in a country still struggling to find its footing and national identity.
It also seeks to help South Sudan recover in the aftermath of several decades of civil war that have brought untold humanitarian suffering amid huge refuge influx in the region.
"We have awards in twenty categories for best movies, director, camera, supporting actor and actress. The three best films are going to be awarded cash prizes yeezy boost 350 pink uk ," Thomas said.
She said movies from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Tanzania, Rwanda, Tanzania, France, Sweden and Germany with similar cultural connection to the South Sudanese experience will be screened.
South Sudan descended into violence in December 2013 after political dispute between President Salva Kiir and his former deputy Riek Machar led to fighting that pitted mostly Dinka ethnic soldiers loyal to Kiir against Machar's Nuer ethnic group.
A 2015 peace agreement to end the violence was again violated in July 2016 when the rival factions resumed fighting in the capital yeezy boost 350 grey uk , forcing Machar to flee into exile.
The conflict has killed tens of thousands of people and forced millions of others to seek refuge in neighboring countries.

The one thing that movie fans all over the world had been waiting years to happen finally happened - Leonardo DiCaprio won an Oscar!
The excitement wasn't just limited to Western media. Over in China social media platforms were flooded with posts from people celebrating DiCaprio's big win.
"I almost cried when his name was announced," many Chinese fans posted on networks such as Sina Weibo. DiCaprio received a standing ovation when he went up to accept the award yeezy boost 350 black uk sale , while his old friend and partner from Titanic, Kate Winslet, cried off stage.
Who didn't want him to win? Rising to sudden stardom in Titanic, DiCaprio has been in the business for decades, continually making outstanding films that won him five Oscar nominations. Yet this was the first time he walked off the stage with the golden trophy, the award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his performance in The Revenant.
After thanking his co-star Tom Hardy and The Revenant crew yeezy boost 350 black uk , he also raised awareness for climate change and showed his appreciation for the award.
"Do not take the planet for granted, I do not take tonight for granted."
It was the end of an era for the Internet as well. With DiCaprio actually holding a trophy in his hands, the worldwide "Leo wants an Oscar" meme will finally come to an end.
Alejandro G. I?árritu, director of The Revenant, once again took home the award for Best Director. This is the second year in a row for the Mexican director, who won last year for his notable work Birdman.
Spotlight yeezy boost 350 moonrock uk sale , the critical acclaimed biographical drama about the Boston Globe's investigation into child sex abuse by Roman Catholic priests, was awarded Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay.
Brie Larson - the leading actress in Room, a drama about a woman and her son's experiencing the world after being held captive for years in a squalid room - took home the Best Actress award for her heart-breaking performance.
All eyes on Rock
It feels like host Chris Rock should get an Oscar for his genius and hilarious opening monologue for the 88th Academy Awards, which poked fun at Hollywood's lack of diversity as well as boycotters of the event.
"Well, I'm here at the Academy Awards. Otherwise known as the white People's Choice awards. You realize if they nominated hosts, I wouldn't even get this job. Y'all would be watching Neil Patrick Harris right now yeezy boost 350 moonrock uk ," Rock said, jokingly referring to previous Oscar host Harris.
In addition to the opening, the issue of diversity was stressed from time to time throughout the entire show. After one commercial break, instead of saying "We are back," Rock said "We are black."
In one cutting joke, Rock pointed out that no black people protested the lack of black nominees during the 1950s and 1960s because "We were too busy being raped and lynched to care about who won Best Cinematographer. When your grandmother's swinging from a tree yeezy boost 350 turtle dove uk sale , it's really hard to care about Best Documentary Foreign Short," Rock said.
But later he also mocked Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith's decision to not attend the ceremony.
"Jada boycotting the Oscars is like me boycotting Rihanna's panties, I wasn't invited."
Rock definitely rocked the night..
