Directed by Cyril Aris | 2018

When her daughter dies overseas, Lebanese documentarian Cyril Aris’ grandmother chooses not to tell her frail 90-year-old husband for fear that it will fatally strain his already weak heart, opening up a profound emotional rift between them. Shot with an ultra lo-fi intimacy almost entirely within the confines of the couple’s Beirut apartment, this intensely personal “home movie” is a piercing, poignant rumination on family ties and lies.
