Qatar / Sudan
Documentary, 2022, 18'

A revolution in Sudan is filmed twice: by the imaginary camera of the interviewer and by the documentary camera of the director of the documentary we are watching. In both, the urgency of the regime’s violence is reflected.

A cardboard television set, made by a group of young people, goes into the field to capture testimonies at a protest in Khartoum, the capital of Sudan. The spirit is festive, demonstrators are gathering in the city from all over the country, revolt is in the air and the people are calling for their legitimate freedom. The need for a revolution in art and thought is affirmed by the voices of young women, men and adults, the contagious energy is in unison. Posters pay homage to the martyrs, images of the attacks are projected, the people resist without fear, they raise their voices, their arms, they shout the revolution; even if new military attacks are coming, the people don’t give up.
