Daratt (Dry Season)

Even when there isn't a film festival, Edinburgh's Filmhouse cinema still shows excellent films from around the world. This evening I saw Daratt, a film from Chad, that follows Atim, a young man as, sent by his grandfather, he travels to the city to kill the man who murdered Atim's father before Atim was even born. It's a slow, meditative film, with much of the narrative being revealed through visual clues.

A Festival of African films, Africa in Motion comes to the Filmhouse from 25 October to 4 November.
