Hissein Habré, a Chadian Tragedy

Hissein Habré, a Chadian Tragedy Movie Poster

In the 1980s, brutal dictator Hissein Habré and his regime took the lives of over 40,000 Chadian citizens and tortured thousands more. The Habré administration and its horrific crimes were largely supported or ignored by the rest of the world.

In Hissein Habré, A Chadian Tragedy, Mahamat-Saleh Haroun uses the directorial prowess honed in narrative works including Grigris and A Screaming Man to bring to light powerful documentary testimony by survivors of that regime, men and women who still bear the scars of the horrors they endured in their flesh and in their souls.
