About the Film

Four idealist and intensely humane filmmakers who have been lifetime friends reunite after long years of distance and exile, in order to bring their old dream back to life: making cinema a reality in Sudan. They are determined to leave a trace of their passage, and revive an everlasting relationship with the big screen. These are the chronicles of film passion, hoping to reignite a country’s love of cinema. The film won the Glashütte Original Documentary Award and the Panorama Dokumente Audience Award at the 69th Berlinale.
