Re:Verzió

Ibrahim, Soliman, Manar and Altayeb—intensely humane idealists—have been filmmakers and friends for more than 45 years. Reunited after long years of distance and exile, they plan to revive their old dream: to make cinema a reality in Sudan. They are determined to leave their mark and inspire a love for cinema. Throughout the images they create, the ones they lost and the ones remaining only a desire, the beautiful and horrific faces of their country appear.
