Louth Film Club’s latest offering is set to be African film ‘ A screaming Man’.

The production will be screened at Louth’s Playhouse Cinema on Monday, November 12.

“This is a powerful drama from the landlocked African country of Chad,” said a spokesperson for the club.

“Directed by one of Africa’s most highly-respected film makers, Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, A Screaming Man portrays the struggles of a former swimming champion, now a poolside attendant at a resort hotel, against the horrors of his country’s civil war and the changes enforced on him by the hotel’s new Chinese owners.

“Winner of the Jury Prize at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, the film is in French and Arabic, with subtitles,” they added.

A Screaming Man is Certificate PG. The show starts at 7.30pm.
