In Sudan, a government controlled by Islamic fundamentalists for the past three decades leads to the demise of an entire film industry and heritage, with only a few remaining theatres screening Hollywood and Bollywood blockbusters in central Khartoum. In this context, a group of retired directors hope to reopen a cinema and revive their country’s love of film. Winner of the audience & original documentary awards at the Berlin Film Festival.
