New to the program in 2016 is a Spotlight on Lebanon, a country with an extraordinary film culture and deep ties to France.

Acclaimed actor Carlos Chahine will be with us to present the latest film in which he stars, Ghassan Salhab’s artful and stunning The Valley. Prior to The Valley, we will also screen Chahine’s award-winning short film The North Road and Carlos will be interviewed by screenwriter and actress Myrna Dahdah. Our tribute will conclude with the much-anticipated Halal Love directed by Assad Fouladkar, which premiered at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. In celebration of our Spotlight on Lebanon, we will provide falafel and Lebanese wine following The Valley.
