The BBC Arabic Festival returns to LAAF with a screening of feature length documentary, Those Who Remain, from distinguished director Eliane Raheb winner of the BBC Arabic Festival ‘Best Feature Documentary’ and other awards.

Those Who Remain (PG, Arabic with English subtitles)

Director, Eliane Raheb

Al Shambouk is one of the highest mountainous areas in Lebanon. Located in the Akkar heights, it is only a few kilometres away from Syria. It is the homeland of Haykal, a 60-year-old Christian farmer. In this spot, where borders intersect, along with different religious factions and social classes, Haykal decided to settle down and build a farm and a restaurant. Haykal deals with neighbouring quarries and the agricultural stagnation, in addition to the repercussions of the Syrian crisis on the political and economic situation. Despite these adversities, Haykal feels he must remain in his land now more than ever, building his new home and defending his coexistence in Lebanon.

This event is part of Liverpool Arab Arts Festival 2018 (5 — 15th July) and the festival's enhanced musical programme for 2018, facilitated by the provision of additional resources as part of the Liverpool 2018 celebrations. Liverpool Arab Arts Festival is also made possible thanks to funds from Arts Council England.
