Storyline

Present-day Chad. Adam, fifty-five, a former swimming champion, is 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. Rebel forces are attacking the government. The authorities demand that the population contribute to the "war effort", giving money or volunteers old enough to fight off the assailants. The District Chief constantly harasses Adam for his contribution. But Adam is penniless; he only has his son.... Written by Pyramide International

A Screaming Man
27 October 2016 | by lischneiderSee all my reviews

"A Screaming Man," directed by Mahamat Saleh Haroun, was a very slow-paced, but somewhat moving film. The silences and actions of the characters led the viewers to conceive a message worth a million words. I thought this was a very interesting way to film, and it led me and my classmates to interpret our own messages out of the film's dialogue through the actors' eye contact. "A Screaming Man," is a puzzling film that will lead you to rethink how people around the world interact with one another -- it definitely persuaded me to find a different global perspective. This film persuades the viewers to further think about the future and well-being of our world as it is today.
