Philippe Aractingi is compiling a collection of his early films, “Courts Métrages et Documentaires,” in which he shares, namely, Beirut of Stone and Memory: images of Beirut accompanied by Nadia Tueni’s poems (Gold Medal at the Jeux de la Francophonie, Paris and Jury’s Merit at the African and Creole Cinema Days, Montreal).
Also included are three movies which he directed for international television stations: The Dream of the Acrobat Child (France 3, B-SKYB, NDR), Grand Jury Award at the Beryte International Festival, Vol Libre (« Envoyé Spécial » France 2), Jury Award at the St Hilaire International Festival of Flight, Chemins de Femmes (« Le Jour du Seigneur » France 2), and La Vallée de Kadicha (« Faut Pas Rêver » France 3).
A compilation of 5 DVDs in a same box set comprising Bosta, Under the Bombs, Une Terre Pour un Homme, Ghassan Tueni’s last interview, “Courts Métrages et Documentaires,” and exclusively, Through Mothers’ Eyes, an investigative 52’ documentary produced for “Envoyé Spécial,” that reveals the hidden power of those that we have always assumed to be submissive and on the sidelines. A film that remains alarmingly relevant.
