Heritages

As he flees Lebanon again in July 2006, director Philippe Aractingi (Under the Bombs) realizes that, like him, his ancestors have been fleeing wars and massacres for five generations. In a fresco where photos, archives and home videos of his children subtly interact, he tells the story of his family’s travels through the Levant. A film about exile, memory and transmission, filled with emotion and honesty.
