Qumra film screening: Tramontane (Rabih) — Wednesday

The Qumra Film Festival kicks off this week with the screening of some fantastic films! The first one is happening this Wednesday with the premiere of Tramontane (Rabih)!

Synopsis: Young Rabih is well-liked by family, friends and the community of the Lebanese village he calls home. A blind, extremely talented singer and tablah player, he spends much of his time rehearsing with the musical group he plays in. When the band is invited to perform in Europe, Rabih, excited by the opportunity, heads to the magistrate’s office to obtain his passport – only to discover there are certain “irregularities” with his identity card. Denied international travel until he can prove to the authorities who he is, Rabih finds himself opening a closet full of family skeletons.

The film has a universal ring in its examination of the grief, guilt and shame that are the wages of lies and betrayal.
