Director: Carol Mansour | Producer: Christine Chamoun
Focus Years: 2011 | Country: Lebanon
According to the Lebanese nationality law, Lebanese women that choose to marry a foreign man are denied the right to extend their citizenship to their husbands and children. Without citizenship, those families are denied most social, civil, and economic rights.
This is the first documentary in Lebanon that deals with such a fragile and controversial topic.
The film is told through the intimate stories of five Lebanese families from different social, religious, and economic backgrounds but whose lives and experiences are bound together by a discriminatory nationality law. It chronicles the lives of these families, their joys, pains, expectations, and deceptions.
