A CLOSE UP (filmmakers-in-person) series
Eliane Raheb’s Berlin Film Festival-winning work follows Miguel, a gay man who returns to Lebanon after 37 years to reflect on his experience growing up during the civil war, and to remember the relationships that shaped him as a son, lover, and soldier. Using a brilliant array of forms, Raheb plays with our notions of biography, opening new windows into the nature of story. (2021, 128 min.), Film + Q&A.
“Uncovers the breadth of Lebanon’s troubled collective experience with humor, honesty and a common humanity” –Variety
