Screening of "Heritages", a franco-libanese documentary [fr]
On 31 October 2014, the Embassy of Lebanon in South Africa organized a screening of "Heritages", a franco-libanese documentary, with support of the Embassy of France.
"As he flees Lebanon again in July 2006, director Philippe Aractingi realizes that, like him, his ancestors have been fleeing wars and massacres for five generations. In a fresco where photos, archives and home videos of his children subtly interact, he tells the story of his family’s travels through the Levant. A film about exile, memory and transmission, filled with emotion and honesty."
The screening was opened by M. Ara Katchadourian, Chargé d’affaires of the Lebanese embassy, and M. Frank Marchetii, Head of cooperation and cultural affairs of the French embassy.
The film director Philippe Aractingi was there with his family, the main characters of the movie. The screening was followed by a Q&A session.
