Description

This is a film about Georges Nasser, the first Lebanese filmmaker to screen his work at the renowned international film festival in Cannes, and in this documentary, he fondly relays his journey with cinema. Here, his story is told with candor, humor, and grace, as the Lebanese auteur recounts a fascinating tale of unprecedented success, struggle, and disappointment. A Certain Nasser presents the compelling journey of a man who crafted films in the absence of a film industry, and whose childlike enthusiasm for his greatest love, cinema, gleams in his eyes even at ninety years of age. Through his lens, we hear the history of a nation and an art form.
