Short Film

Ibrahim Shaddad


27 minutes

no dialogue
    "Dramatic and powerful." - Shirin Ghareeb, Arabian Sights Film Festival

Sudanese filmmaker Ibrahim Shaddad provides a dramatic and powerful account of the trials and alienation of a Sudanese villager in a large city. Shot entirely without dialogue, the film's innovative use of sound helps tell the story of a shepherd who leaves his wife and herd to settle in a nearby town.

Since its premiere at the Alexandria Film Festival, INSAN has been shown in a number of festivals in the Middle East and Europe. This film is a prime example of experimental Arab cinema.

This film is available with a Digital Site License (DSL), which allows colleges, universities, or libraries to encode, locally host, and stream the film to their community on a closed, password-protected system.
