A Screaming Man

A highly-regarded drama set in modern-day Chad, "A Screaming Man" sees Youssouf Djaoro play Adam, a one-time swimming champion now in his mid-fifties who works as swimming pool manager at a hotel. His life is turned upside down when the hotel is taken over by new owners who make Adam redundant and give the job to his son Abdel. Meanwhile, the country is gripped by civil war as the government comes under attack from rebel forces and all civilians are expected to contribute to the war effort. Humiliated, resentful and penniless, Adam makes a deal with the leader of the local resistance movement that he will live to regret.
