Synopsis
Out of Africa come these critically acclaimed films that express the history and culture of the people. DARATT, aka DRY SEASON, is a moody, fable-like drama set in postwar Chad. With only 3 characters and minimal dialogue, director Mahamat-Salhe ... Full DescriptionHaroun offers a heart-wrenching reflection on injustice and revenge. After a general amnesty has let war criminals off the hook, a bitter grandfather sends his grandson to the big city to kill the man who murdered the boy's father. THE DESERT ARK is a version of Romeo and Juliet set in an oasis in the Algerian desert. When Amin and Myriam are caught kissing in the dunes, deep-seated religious rivalries are stirred up in their small community.

This third volume continues to highlight the often underrepresented world of African cinema. Revenge and politics converge in DARATT, the story of a boy who sets out after the amnestied war criminal who killed his father. DESERT ARK follows two lovers from feuding families who try to find shelter in a world at war.
