For the past year, I have been working on the work and archives of my mother, the filmmaker Randa Chahal Sabbag.
Most of her movies have been largely discussed praised or censored. She was one of the first Lebanese filmmaker to receive a prestigious international award, the Silver Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 2003. It is fair to say and i am proud to write that her work is part of the heritage of Lebanese cinema.
This year, which marks the 10-year anniversary of her passing, we are launching a series of events, including a full film retrospective of her work. This event will be held from June 25th until July 2nd in Beirut, Lebanon.
