This Little Father Obsession

Jana Wehbe  |  Arab Documentary Film Program  |  2012  |  Lebanon
As the apparent last male descendant of his family, the filmmaker is researching his family tree in the hopes of discovering a male descendant other than himself to ensure the continuity of the family name into the next generation. Being attracted to men, he does not intend to marry. His search, however, is unfruitful and he begins to wonder about conceiving a child through a woman and working around the inherited social norms of hetero-normative family life.
