SOUTHERN LIGHTS SERIES // Wissam Tanios about NAHNOU MEN HOUNAK
Rabih El-Khoury in conversation with director Wissam Tanios and producer Christian Eid
Recorded on 29 October 2020 in the cinema of the DFF.
Two Syrian brothers in their mid-20s decide to move to different cities and start their lives from scratch. They leave everything behind, except their passion for life, their determination, their sense of humor and their hope for a better future.
Their cousin Wissam documents their journey over five years. In his film he evokes childhood memories, explores the meaning of home and the ability of people to deal with radical change.
