We were Communists

Maher Abi Samra  |  Cinema  |  2008  |  Lebanon
Producer: Jinane Dagher
A reflection on the intersecting destinies of comrades who were once bound by ideologies and remain tightly knit friends, We Were Communists is Maher Abi Samra's uninhibited examination of the legacy of Lebanon's civil war and its post-war present. Four men recount their stories from the battlefield, their broken dreams, and their eventual disillusionment in light of the country's ongoing unsettled crises.
