Director
Maciej J. Drygas

Abu Haraz is a small village on the banks of the Nile, right in the middle of the desert in Northern Sudan. The flooding of the river and seasons of the year mark the rhythm of its people’s lives, which the director observes for several years. Although the village seems lacking in material things, it’s rich with the colors of life, laughter and family warmth. However, the construction of a gigantic dam on the Nile breaks the ancient natural pattern of people’s lives. Their attempts to protest are futile. They have to prepare to move to an unknown place. Prior to leaving, they need to destroy their homes before they are flooded.
