How to build a country from scratch: South Sudan

Published on : 20 February 2013 - 8:00am | By RNW Africa Desk (Screenshot: New York Times)
More about:

In July 2011, South Sudan gained independence. But how does a new-born state go about creating itself, particularly when it is located in a violent region and has limited resources and infrastructure? This documentary video gives a peek into the building of a nation.

Published as a New York Times op-doc, the clip draws from a feature-length documentary entitled 'State Builders' by film-makers Florence Martin-Kessler and Anne Poiret.
