A Screaming Man
(Cannes 2010 Jury Prize winner) is a meditative feature about paternal pride against the backdrop of a war, from award-winning director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun (Abouna
). When Adam is forced to give up his job as a pool attendant to his son, he is left hurt, resentful and humiliated.
With the country in the throes of civil war, the authorities are demanding that citizens give money or volunteer for the war effort. Adam is penniless, and under pressure to contribute, he commits a terrible act of betrayal.
