“The Kite”

Randa Chahal-Sabbagh, 80 minutes, with English subtitles, Drama, 2003, Lebanon – France.

The events of the film take place in two Druze villages: one in Lebanon and the other in Israel.

Lamia at the age of 16 is married against her will to her cousin who lives, across the barbed-wire, in Israel. She leaves her village, her family, her past and her kite…Although very close, the borders that separate the two societies make them very different.

Through Lamia’s unhappy love story with her husband and impossible story with an Israeli soldier, the film addresses the issues of occupation, borders, culture, love and marriage.

“The Kite” won the 2003 Venice Film Festival’s Silver Lion Award for the Best Film.
