Adeem by Adel Serhan / 12 min. / 2009 / Lebanon / Narrative Fiction
"It is a movie that lasts only 12 minutes but is equivalent to

The film starts with a laugh, a mother's laugh, ... and ends with
her screaming tears the moment she meets her son as
martyr in his white coffin." says Serhan.
The filmmaker will be present for a brief Q&A
