FRA/TCD | 2013 | dir. Mahamat-Saleh Haroun

Despite a paralysed leg that could have barred most avenues, Grigris, 25 years old, dreams of being a professional dancer. A challenge. But his dreams are dashed when his stepfather falls critically ill. In order to pay for the hospital bills, Grigris resolves to work for petrol traffickers. Presented in competition in Cannes in 2013 and never released in the UK, Grigris was directed by Mahamat-Saleh Haroun, the award winning director of A Screaming Man (Jury Prize, Cannes Film Festival 2010).
