Dry Season on IMDb
When the government of Chad releases all the war criminals from the Civil War that scourged the country from 1965, the 15-year-old Atim takes the law into his own hands. He goes looking for his father’s murderer: he wants to kill him. The war that started in 1965 in Chad changed the country into a wilderness of pain, hatred and vengeance. The call for justice can be heard everywhere, but what is justice in a country where almost all the civilians are themselves victims? The marginal life of the impotent survivors seems to merge without contrast in the pale landscapes of the ravaged country.Mahamat-Saleh Haroun situated „Dry Season” against the background of this great drama and in doing so creates a small yet powerful story about hatred and forgiveness.
