See these films: The Francophone Film Festival at the MFA


 A Screaming Man (2010)

One such Francophone country is the African nation of Chad, the setting for A Screaming Man (2010), Saleh Haroun's tale of a hotel pool attendant struggling for survival during a civil war. Similarly outspoken is Québecois director Robin Aubert's Crying Out (2010), in which an inconsolable widower runs off with his wife's corpse.
