Salim Mrad

Salim Mrad is a Lebanese author and director. He has directed the short personal documentaries A Letter to My Sister (2008), in which he began an exploration of his own family dynamics, and A Trip to the Barbershop (2009),  a love letter painted with isolation of living in a foreign land and the intimate time spent together with the director’s loved ones. He has also directed the fiction works The Demolition (2011) and X: The Conception (2012). Mourad’s first feature documentary This Little Father Obsession builds out a queer exploration of procreation and transmission. From 2018 to 2020, he released three films — Linceul (2018), Cortex (2019), and Agate Mousse (2020) — that make up a political trilogy of the body. In 2022, he published his first book Muffins with Éditions L'Harmattan.
