The War After the War explores the mental health struggles of South Sudanese youth in America. Through intimate conversations, the film discusses the effects of war on youth today by allowing them to share their personal experiences with mental health.
This community has seen a rise in the number of losses to suicide, and the film provides a space for conversation about generational trauma, the cultural factors that stigmatize mental health, and the ways youth are organizing their community to heal and grow for future generations.
