Jean Chamoun’s film revisits the tragic 15 year civil war in Lebanon which ended in 1990. Renowned Lebanese film maker Chamoun brings us into the complexities of Lebanon’s civil war, through the lives of Rami, a twelve-year-old boy on the cusp of adulthood, and his family. In hopes of escaping the civil war escalating in the countryside, Rami’s family moves to Beirut. However, the war follows them to the city, and there Rami and his family struggle with unemployment, death and the disappearance of loved ones.

This film explores the political and social complexities of the Lebanese civil war, while addressing the consequences of war on Lebanon’s youth. Also this event will include a discuss on the relationship between the Lebanese civil-war and present day sectarian conflict that continues to effect Lebanon and the entire Middle East region.
