‘A Screaming Man’

Still from A Screaming Man

The annual New York African Film Festival takes place till the end of May. One of the outstanding films on the program is “Un Homme Qui Crie” (A Screaming Man) by Chadian director, Mahamat Saleh Haroun. The film won the 2010 Cannes Jury Prize. Public screenings of Un Homme Qui Crie are scheduled for 26 and 28 May. The usually dour Armond White is impressed; so is Manohla Dargis in The New York Times. Haroun was recently interviewed on the BBC.

Here’s the festival’s full program.
