Synopsis: Selected for the Official Competition at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, A SCREAMING MAN is a meditative feature about paternal pride against the backdrop of a war, from award-winning director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun (ABOUNA; DARATT). Former swimming champion Adam is now a pool attendant at a smart N'Djamena hotel, taking fierce pride in his job. His grown-up son Abdel helps him out, but when the hotel is taken over by new Chinese owners, it is Abdel who gets the pool attendant job, and Adam is demoted to the post of gatekeeper. Hurt and resentful, Adam is left seething with humiliation. With the country in the throes of civil war and rebel forces attacking the government, the authorities are demanding that citizens contribute money or volunteer for the war effort. Adam is constantly harassed by the District Chief to make his contribution, but he is penniless. In haste, he commits a terrible act of betrayal, with devastating consequences.
