Our Beloved Sudan documents the political destiny of the Sudanese nation from its birth in 1956 to its eventual partition in 2011. Juxtaposing the story of a mixed race family caught across the North/South divides with a larger social commentary through interviews with political key figures, director Taghred Elsanhouri seeks to understand how the Sudanese reached the point where they must part and how to make peace with that parting. The film won the Luxor Film Festival Silver Jury Award 2011.
