Press Quotes

Despite the plot unfolding in a remote Lebanese village, Yara remains true to its role models, and for that reason it manages to strike up a secret dialogue with Buñuel and Bresson.

The films of Abbas Fahdel are unique in the way they represent the area in which they unfold. His movies immortalise the sheer authenticity of the places he chooses, as well as the day-to-day life of the people who live there.
