25 August 2017 - 9 September 2017

Rabih, a young blind man, lives in a small village in Lebanon. He sings in a choir and edits Braille documents for an income.

His life unravels when he tries to apply for a passport and discovers that his identification card, which he has carried his entire life, is a forgery. Traveling across rural Lebanon in search of a record of his own birth, he meets people on the far fringes of society who tell their own stories, open further questions and give Rabih minor clues about his true identity.

Descending into a void at the heart of his existence, Rabih encounters a nation incapable of telling his or its own narrative.
