DAFF 2017: TRAMONTANE

VATCHE BOULGHOURJIAN

This film screened on Saturday 7th October 2017.

The life of young blind Lebanese musician Rabih (real life musician Barakat Jabbour) is thrown into uncertainty when he applies for a passport to go on a European tour with his band.

When doubt is cast upon the authenticity of his documentation, it leads the confused and frustrated Rabih on a quest into rural Lebanon to uncover the true nature of his identity. Through the poetic figure of a rootless blind musician, director Boulghourjian subtly reflects on the collective disorientation and amnesia of a nation damaged by years of conflict and unrest.

The film is screening as part of the Dublin Arabic Film Festival 2017.
