Ibrahim, Soliman, Manar and Altayeb, filmmakers and friends for more than 45 years, idealists and intensely humane. They were reunited again, after long years of distance and Exile, to bring life back to their old dream: make cinema a reality in the Sudan. They are determined to leave a trace of their passage and to inspire the love of films. Throughout the images they created, the ones they lost and the ones that remain a desire, the beautiful and horrific faces of their country appear.
"Founded in 2011, Wide House is specialized in cinematic documentaries, always with a special marketing angle (art & culture or social issues). Our purpose is to promote and distribute internationally innovative titles for all rights and all medias.
We build long-term partnerships with both new directors and award-winning filmmakers (Raoul Peck, Carlos Saura, Claire Simon, Missirkov/Bogdanov). We represent 10 to 15 new feature-length documentaries per year and carefully selected TV programs.
Wide House has the know-how to launch and increase the commercial value of those documentaries with the right festival strategy. We have built over the years a strong network by attending every Cinema and TV market."
