Political Drama | Film Notes


Everyone has their own little fiefdom. For our hero in “A Sceaming Man” this means being lord of the towels at a posh hotel in Chad. Even humble privileges involve political intrigue and when the outside world invades the hotel confines we are witness to a life lived in perpetual wartime. This outstanding film won the 2010 Cannes Jury prize.
