Francophone Film Series: Un Homme Qui Crie

May 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm - Free

Join the Bullock Museum for a screening and conversation about Mahamat-Saleh Haroun’s film Un homme qui crie (A Screaming Man).

A 60-something former swimming champion, Adam, is a pool attendant at a hotel in Chad and is forced to give up his job to his son, Abdel. Meanwhile the country is in the throes of civil war and authorities demand the population to contribute to the “war effort,” with money or volunteers old enough to fight. In a moment of weakness, Adam makes a decision that he will forever regret.

This screening is part of the Francophone Film Series, which brings a rich diversity of cinematic work featuring the Francophone world, a linguistic bloc that covers twenty-nine countries and encompasses countless cultural identities. In its first season, all films explore ideas of discovery. The Museum is proud to highlight acclaimed films co-presented with Alliance Française d’Austin and Alliance Française d’Austin Ciné-Club. Films in the Francophone Film Series are presented in French with English subtitles. This evening’s program is shown in conjunction with our core exhibition, Becoming Texas and includes a film screening and Q&A with guest moderator, Alliance Française d’Austin Ciné-Club Director, Julia Podgorsek.
