SYNOPSIS

‘This powerful documentary sheds light on one of the darkest corners of Chadian history: the brutal reign of Hissène Habré, a dictator who unleashed horrific violence and human rights abuses upon a generation. Through bracing interviews with survivors of the regime, Haroun gives voice to the victims who reveal scars both physical and psychological—but also a defiant determination to bring Habré to justice.’ BAM cinématek.
