My Uncle The Terrorist

Elias Moubarak  |  Arab Documentary Film Program  |  2009  |  Lebanon
The Terrorist is a documentary about a filmmaker searching for the truth about his uncle, Fouad Shemali –– a sensitive poet, a dedicated brother, a silent martyr and a violent "terrorist". The filmmaker investigates Fouad’s life through his family’s stories, the people who supported and opposed him, and those who can help understand his behavior in the context of the times.
