Talking About Trees

Suhaib Gasmelbari | France/Sudan | 2019 | PG | 93 mins | Arabic/English | Trailer

A charming documentary. The military coup of 1989 resulted in the collapse of the Sudanese film Industry and the closure of all cinemas. Four elderly Sudanese film directors try to bring a disused cinema back to life for the local population in Khartoum. They remain ever optimistic despite the political situation. Their humour, camaraderie and quiet dignity shine through and make you wish for their success. A film for all who love cinema.
