Sabren – صابرين means patience in sudanese arabic. Patience and resilience are the key skills that Sudanese need to have these days. Sabren is also the title of the short movie by Eythar Gubara, a Sudanese filmmaker based in Hamburg. During the event, the movie will let you dive into the inside of the protests in Sudan in 2021-2022. Additionally voices from the Resistance Committee from Sudan will build the connection to recent developments in the country. A discussion together with the audience will create room for exchange and brainstorming how to break the shrinking spaces in future.

The Resistance Committees of Sudan are neighbourhood groups that have spearheaded Sudan’s pro-democracy movement since 2019. They used to be the coordinators and ‘first in the row’ of multiple peaceful protests in Sudan over the past 4 years. Today they mobilised to establish committees of medics, nurses and engineers across the country to serve humanitarian assistance since the war erupted.
