Talking About Trees

France, Sudan, Chad, Germany, Qatar, 2019. Directed by Suhaib Gasmelbari. 93 min. PG. 

Premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival (Panorama) 2019, this poignant and witty documentary focuses on four Sudanese directors whose careers have been stalled since a military coup in 1989 triggered the collapse of the country’s film industry. The film begins surreally with the filmmakers recreating the famous ‘closeup’ scene from Sunset Boulevard. None of them have worked properly in years. Now a power outage prevents them from even watching a movie, so they make do. Ibrahim Shaddad wraps a blue chiffon scarf coquettishly around his face as Norma Desmond, simpering: “I’m ready for my closeup.” Presented in Arabic with English Subtitles.
