From 12th to 17th of november will stand in cinemas of Beirut, Tripoli, Tyre, Saida and Zahleh the 2d edition of Cultural Resistance International Film Festival. On an initiative of Jocelyne Saab, lebanese filmmaker, the event proposes to question history, war, memory, youth and women rights in Lebanon through a serie of films from Asia and Mediterranean. Almost 40 feature films, documentaries, comedies, tragedies, experimental or classical films are gathered around these issues to encourage everyone to think about the meaning of his condition.

Great films, which are shown for the first time in Lebanon : Nagima (opening of the famous Busan Festival in South-Asia) by Zhanna Issabayeva, The Owners (awarded at Cannes Festival 2014) by Adlikhan Yerzhanov, Ilo Ilo (already more than 30 millions spectators in Asia) by Anthony Chen, but also important reeditions, as Cruel Story of Youth by Nagisa Oshima, Ordinary People by Vladimir Perisic, or Khalass by Borhane Alaouié.

Nevertheless, the festival doesn't stop its action to the only screening of films : a lot of seminaries and masterclasses are organized in serveral universities (LAU, IESAV-USJ, ALBA) with specialists and film directors. Two competitions are also proposed to students and young artists to promote creation and film studies.

Don't miss this unique event ; join and promote the Cultural Resistance with us.
