“The Middle East Through Christian Eyes” Film Series: “The Insult” – Lebanon
March 19, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us for the second in a series of film screenings focused on the plight of Christian communities in the Middle East. This event features “The Insult”: In today’s Beirut, an insult blown out of proportion finds Toni, a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser, a Palestinian refugee, in court. From secret wounds to traumatic revelations, the media circus surrounding the case puts Lebanon through a social explosion, forcing Toni and Yasser to reconsider their lives and prejudices. A panel will follow the film to discuss.
