The Director Mahamat-Saleh Haroun (Tchad)

Daratt the movie!

Scene from the movie!

I don't believe that I've had the opportunity yet to present the work of my sistas and brothas from Tchad so it's with great excitment that I'm introducing y'all to the work of

Mr. Mahamat Saleh who directed the acclaimed prize winner of the Special Jury Prize at this year Venise movie festival.

This movie is about the emotional consequences of war on a young man whose father was killed during the politcal turmoil in Tchad. He makes it his mission to find his father's killer ;but he's surprise and discusted to find himself forming a bond w/the now humble baker that was his father's murderer.

The movie was directed by Mahamat Saleh who was a journalist during 5 years after having graduated from "le Conservatoire de Paris". Let me explain...since he couldn't find a job at the time he used that time to write without losing his passion for film. He lives in the Western world, but he makes its a point each year to recharge his batteries in his native land.

This will def' not the last you hear about him, so keep his name in mind!

Djaa les gens du Tchad sont dans le chaud aussi:)
Eyee Wayee:)
