More About the Film

UN HOMME QUI CRIE (THE SCREAMING MAN)
by Mahamat-Saleh Haroun (2010, France, 1h32)


Set in present-day Chad, Adam is a fifty-five year old former swimming champion and pool attendant at a smart N'Djamena hotel. When the hotel gets taken over by new Chinese owners, he is forced to give up his job to his son Abdel. Terribly resentful, he feels socially humiliated. The country is in the throes of a civil war. The authorities demand that the population contribute to the "war effort", giving money or volunteers old enough to fight off the assailants. But Adam is penniless; he only has his son....

Un homme qui crie received the Prix du Jury of Festival de Cannes.
