Chadian auteur Mahamat-Saleh Haroun’s Cannes Grand Jury Prize-winning film, Un homme qui crie (A Screaming Man), which was picked up for North American distribution by Film Movement last fall, has finally made its way to DVD land (released yesterday), after enjoying a limited theatrical run earlier this year.
So, if you didn’t get to see it in theaters, now you have a chance to see it in the comfort of your own home.
It’s also streaming on Netflix, by the way.
The synopsis again:
Adam (Youssouf Djaoro) was a security guard at a posh Chad hotel until its new owners replaced him with his son (Dioucounda Koma). In this nation torn apart by civil war, citizens are called upon to help. But Adam only has one thing to give, forcing him to make a devastating choice.
Here’s the trailer again:
