A Screaming Man

2010 / 92min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: MAHAMAT SALEH HAROUN

CAST: YOUSSOUF DJAORO, DIOUC KOMA, EMILE ABOSSOLO M'BO

Writer-director Haroun tells the story of his native Chad’s troubled history not from the battlefield frontlines, but at poolside. Adam (Youssouf Djaoro) is a former Chadian swimming great now working with his son (Diouc Koma) at a resort hotel, but when corporate intervention puts Adam in a job below his station, his own flesh-and-blood becomes his competition. An elegant, minimalist character study, and one of the best films of the new millennium.
