In modern day Beirut, an insult blown out of proportion finds Tony, a Lebanese Christian, and Yasser, a Palestinian refugee, in court. From secret wounds to traumatic revelations, the media circus surrounding the case puts Lebanon through a social explosion, forcing Toni and Yasser to reconsider their lives and prejudices. Nominated for an Academy Award, The Insult is a unique thriller that explores questions of guilt, justice and honor in the Middle East. (Lebanon, France, Cyprus, Belgium, US, 2017, 113 mins, Arabic | Dir. Ziad Doueiri)
