A propos:

When a man must flee Lebanon for the third time in his life in the wake of the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah war, the relocation to Paris prompts him to delve into the history of his family, dislocated numerous times in the past by political and military upheavals. Mixing home movies and photographs with reenactments of his ancestors played by members of his family, as well as interviews with other relatives and friends, Heritages is a moving and powerful meditation on identity, choice, origins, and the strong bonds of family. From the director of the hit Lebanese film Bosta.

In his self-described “autobiographical novel in images,” Aractingi says, “I’ve always thought that seeing ourselves grow could help us understand our choices.”

A propos du Mois de la Francophonie:

Le Mois de la Francophonie, organisé chaque année partout dans le monde, a pour but de promouvoir la langue française dans le contexte de la diversité culturelle ainsi que de soutenir le dialogue et rapprochement des personnes, groupes et communautés intéressés par la francophonie.

Lebanon’s French roots date back to the mandate which assigned Ottoman Syria, including modern day Lebanon, to France after the First World War in 1923. French remains the primary foreign language taught in public schools in Lebanon, and much of the French influence remains today. France played an active role in the reconstruction of Lebanon following their civil war in 1990, and also their 2006 war with Israel.  Through a month-long series of events, Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul will be highlighting Lebanon’s rich historical, cultural, and religious diversity, both in Lebanon and in the diaspora.
