The Insult (Ziad Doueiri, 2017) 

 Contemporary Screen

 Winter/Spring 2018 Preview


Set in contemporary Beirut, Ziad Doueiris follow-up to The Attack is a resonant and compelling look at the tensions in Lebanese society'and sure to be one of the winters most-discussed foreign films. When an insult gets blown out of proportion, a Lebanese Christian and a Palestinian refugee find themselves facing off in court. The media circus that breaks out around the case threatens to ignite a social explosion in their divided country, forcing the trials participants to reconsider their lives and social prejudices. (112 mins., DCP)
