"A Screaming Man" ("Un Homme Qui Crie") Coming Out On DVD This Summer

Anyone who’s a regular reader of Shadow And Act knows how we feel about Mahamet-Saleh Haroun’s magnificent film A Screaming Man (Un Homme qui crie).

We’ve written about it enough times already, praising it deservedly to the skies. However, not surprisingly, it’s gotten so far a very limited release in the U.S., mostly relegated to film festivals and a few major cities.

However, soon you will have your chance to see it, now that it’s been announced that the specialty DVD label Film Movement will release the film on DVD this summer, on Aug. 2. You can already pre-order it on Amazon.

No word as to special features or extras, but once more information becomes available, we’ll be sure to let you know.

A recently formed group in Indianapolis, called Emerging Filmmakers Cooperative, have begun a discussion about it’s mission. After viewing bell hooks, ‘Cultural Criticism’ (Spike Lee), I thought she made our mission crystal clear. Either we develop our own film industry or allow our images to continue to be co-opted. The same way we have had our cosmetics, greeting cards, schools, sports, entertainment, etc. co-opted.

My wife and I have created a documentary film based on a trip to Ghana last year. Our objective was to discover why over 10,000 Africans from the Diaspora left the West to re-connect with the Motherland. After creating the film, we have run into the age-old problem of marketing and distribution.

What if we decided to go our own way and create our own filmmaking industry? How would we go about doing that? Is it time to put our collective heads together and come up with creative ways to get around the artificial barriers to face filmmakers of color worldwide? Your thoughts? Peace.
