Je veux voir

Director: Joana Hadjithomas & Khali Joreige

France-Lebanon • 2008 • 75 minutes

War broke out in Lebanon in July 2006 and the country was devastated by bombings. Two young directors chose to tell the story to the West with this unusual film. Not quite documentary fact but not quite fiction either, Je veux voir follows screen icon Catherine Deneuve on a road trip through Beirut and the surrounding countryside. She travels with the Lebanese actor Rabih Mroue into areas most stars would not dare to tread. Deneuve, who’s known for her involvement with UNESCO and other aid organisations, generously allows the audience to join her on a fascinating journey of discovery.
