Shadow of a Man (en production)
(Sayyarat Batal)

by Niam ITANI


Ahmad, 26, is the best mechanic in the mountains of Lebanon. The only car he has not had time and courage to fix yet is his father’s Peugeot from 1984; the year his dad was killed. When the July War breaks out in 2006, Ahmad finds the chance he’s always waited for. Amidst the ongoing chaos, the refusal of his mother and the sarcasm of his village men, he slowly starts transforming the bullet-ridden rusty car into his wedding ride. But as days pass by and the car gradually comes back to life, dark events ensue and deep wounds surface.
