Film Synopsis 

Ziad Doueiri’s thrilling, 2018 Oscar-nominated legal drama explores the festering historical, political and religious divisions that lie under the surface of day to day life in Lebanon. When Palestinian Muslim foreman Yasser installs a new drainpipe on Lebanese Christian Tony’s balcony without his permission, Tony’s dislike of Palestinians triggers what appears to be a minor disagreement. But insults are hurled, and the situation soon escalates out of control. What begins with a petty argument leads to a highly publicised trial that captivates a nation, and also gives a range of people an opportunity to settle old scores. Doueiri masterfully takes this private clash of wills as a starting point to explore historic rifts amongst Lebanese communities, and the aftermath of the civil war. Intelligently using humour and pathos, The Insult is ultimately a plea for empathy, forgiveness and peace. Don't miss this film, showing as part of the 2018 Lebanese Film Festival.
