Dir. Mahamat-Saleh Haroun | 2010, 92min
With Youssouf Djaoro, Diouc Koma, Emile Abossolo M’Bo
In French and Arabic with English subtitles

“Quietly powerful! A welcome wake-up call about what's going on in the world.”
—The Hollywood Reporter

The scream is a silent one—it’s the quiet desperation felt by Adam (Djaoro), a middle-aged pool attendant who suffers the ultimate humiliation when he loses his beloved job to his teenage son. As civil unrest engulfs Chad, Adam makes a decision that may haunt him forever. In spare but exacting images, Haroun spins a profoundly human drama of loss, regret, and a world changing beyond one’s control. Winner of the Cannes Jury Prize.
