Despite mounting tensions in Lebanon’s picturesque Akkar district, a 60-year-old Christian farmer struggles to hold on to the land he has worked for decades in an area where sectarianism has blotted out memories of a more amicable past. Winner of Dubai’s Special Jury Prize, the documentary deserves a bright festival future. A Jury Prize winner at the last Dubai International Film Festival.
It is showing with a French short, Mad, dir Sophie Tavert (2017); war reporter Madeleine is working in a conflict zone encounters civilian reporter Mazen, who bursts into her hideout.
This presentation is part of Alliance Française Dubai’s Femmes Film Festival, a second consecutive year for this programme of films by female directors from Mediterranean countries.
