Un homme qui crie
(Un homme qui crie)

by Mahamat-Saleh HAROUN


Adam, a former swimming champion is now a pool attendant in a luxury hotel in N’Djaména. After the hotel is sold, he is obliged to hand over his job to his son Abdel, at a time when the country is in the throes of civil war and the armed rebellion is trying to increase its ranks. After Abouna (Our Father) and Daratt, Dry Season, A Screaming Man – a title taken from a line of Aimé Césaire’s poetry – continues the pondering on the relationships of filiation and transmission in the context of Chad’s civil war. In parallel, this triptych proposes a utopia of reconciliation through fiction. Youssouf Djaoro (Adam), a figure of remorse and dignity, is the powerful incarnation of a story structured as a fable and guided by a clear-cut and implacable mise-en-scène. NT
