FRESH FROM ITS 2018 OSCAR NOMINATION FOR BEST FOREIGN LANGUAGE FILM, LEBANON'S FIRST!
THE INSULT (Rated R) (Lebanon, 2018, 1hr 52m) Directed by Ziad Doueiri
"Gripping entertainment, passionate and humane, fascinating in the particulars of its court proceedings and political maneuvering, convincing in its insistence that a dumb fight over a leaking gutter could upend a fractious country." - Village Voice
TICKETS: Advance Sale: $12 | AVFS Members: $10 (prices go up at the door)
In today's Beirut, an insult blown out of proportions finds Toni, a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser, a Palestinian refugee, in court. From secret wounds to traumatic revelations, the media circus surrounding the case puts Lebanon through a social explosion, forcing Toni and Yasser to reconsider their lives and prejudices.
Please be advised that the majority of the films programmed by the AVFS are independently produced and are, as yet, unrated. Viewers with sensitivity to sexual, violent, or crude themes are advised to investigate the content before attending.
