As part of AFAC Film Night, a monthly series of screenings showcasing filmmakers from the Arab region supported by AFAC over the past years, AFAC and Sursock Museum have the pleasure to invite to the screening of Nadine Naous’s film Home Sweet Home on Thursday August 11th, at 7:00 PM at Sursock Museum - Auditorium, Level -2.
Lebanese filmmaker Nadine Naous learns that her father, the principal of the Lebanese Rabia School in South Beirut, is in serious financial difficulties and might be forced to sell the school. The filmmaker returns to her homeland to document this painful period in her family’s life. Home Sweet Home is a personal portrait of her parents, particularly of her father, a man she had always hero-worshipped. The film stems from the initial urge to make her father open up a dialogue about his financial situation, a quandary that many in Lebanon face in silence and in secret.
