DIRECTOR
THE INSULT (2018)
Starring Adel Karam, Kamel El Basha, Rita Hayek, Christine Choueiri, Diamand Bou Abboud, Camille Salameh, Talal Jurdi, Julia Kassar, Rifaat Torbey and Carlos Chahine. Directed by Ziad Doueiri.

It’s a scorching hot afternoon in Beirut. 40-something mechanic Tony already has a chip on his shoulder about Palestinians in Lebanon, so he’s less than welcoming when 60 year-old Yasser, the foreman of a construction crew working on the street outside, asks him to fix the faulty drainpipe on his balcony. Tony closes the door in his face, so Yasser replaces the pipe anyway, only for Tony to smash it to pieces. Passions boil over and the two come to blows, both verbal and physical. Eventually lawyers are called in and the men find themselves in the centre of a highly publicised trial – one that reopens historical and personal wounds on both sides.

REVIEWS The Insult - A brilliant examination of the nature of conflict
