Directed by Suhaib Gasmelbari, 'Talking About Trees' chronicles the actions of the Sudanese Film Club, a group of retired (though not through their own volition) movie directors who try to reopen a theater in the city of Omdourman, located just outside of Khartoum. But in a country dominated by Islamists who have made the existence of cinema extremely difficult, especially in the public sphere, this proves to be a Sisyphean task. The club is headed up by four filmmakers - Ibrahim Shadad, Manar Al Hilo, Suleiman Mohamed Ibrahim, Altayeb Mahdi - whose evocative work is revealed in short clips throughout the documentary.
All of them were educated in film schools outside Sudan, and their politically bent movies, many of which have been banned or lost, reflect the influence of both Soviet montage and the French New Wave.
