Un homme qui crie / A Screaming Man

The Tournées Festival of New French Cinema
Friday, January 13, 2012 - 7:00pm

Working on a scale both intimate (a father’s wounded ego) and epic (a nation torn apart by civil war), writer-director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun creates a tender but unsentimental portrait of present-day Chad, simultaneously unfolding private and national tragedies through the tale of a father, a son and a gleaming swimming pool.

(Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, Chad/France/Belgium, 2010, French and Arabic w. English subtitles, 35mm, 92 min)
