Description

Shambouk is a historically complicated area in Northern Lebanon just a few kilometers away from Syria where borders, religious doctrines, and communities intersect. Haykal, a 60 year-old Christian farmer, lives there and runs a restaurant and is in the process of building a house. Those Who Remain follows Haykal’s struggle to stay on his land amidst sectarian tensions, fear, and hopelessness.
