  • The Lost Film

    2003. Lebanon/France. Written and directed by Joana Hadjithomas, Khalil Joreige. Following the trail of a missing print of their first feature film, Around the Pink House—and mystified as to who would be sufficiently interested in their film to steal it—Hadjithomas and Joreige travel to Yemen. As their quest takes them from Sanaa to Aden, they find out their guide considers movies a sin, and encounter an open-air cinema showcasing Brigitte Nielsen movies in a country where censors compulsively blacklist most releases. The Lost Film is a subjective exploration of the image and status of film and filmmakers in the Middle East. In French, Arabic; English subtitles. 42 min.
