Synopsis

As he flees Lebanon again in July 2006, director Philippe Aractingi realizes that, like him, his ancestors have been fleeing wars and massacres for five generations. In a fresco where photos, archives and home videos of his children subtly interact, he tells the story of his family’s travels through the Levant. A film about exile, memory and transmission, filled with emotion and honesty.
