During the 90’s, nineteen year-old Lina moves in with her aunt and uncle in order to attend a university in Paris. She is alone and naive, with nothing but fear and her natural instinct for selfpreservation. She is looking for something she has never found in her home country of Lebanon: freedom. Arbid also directed Beirut Hotel, shown in 2012. Contains several brief sex scenes.


Speaker: Franck Salameh, Assistant Professor of Near Eastern Studies in the Department of Slavic and Eastern Languages & Literatures at Boston College.
