The Calm After the Storm: Making Sense of Lebanon's Civil War

Film Society at Lincoln Center, May 2010

Despite having no organized movie industry, Lebanon has produced a number of serious independent filmmakers. Much of their work examines the country's strife, including the traumatic 1975-90 civil war. THE CALM AFTER THE STORM: MAKING SENSE OF LEBANON'S CIVIL WAR, the Film Society of Lincoln Center's new series showcasing Lebanese cinema, is a comprehensive survey of their work.
