Wondering why times are missing?

Grigris

Chadian filmmaker Mahamat-Saleh Haroun (A Screaming Man) directs this dark-yet-hopeful drama about a twentysomething kid (Souleymane Démé) who dreams of becoming a dancer. Not even a bum left leg can keep this positive-minded guy from his cherished aspiration. When an uncle falls ill, however, he's forced to put his plans aside. And with medical bills mounting, our titular hero finds himself drawn into the criminal world of central African gasoline trafficking. In French and Arabic with English subtitles. 101 minutes Unrated.
