Cedars in the Pines: History of the Lebanese in North Carolina
The documentary, Cedars in the Pines, narrates the lives of Lebanese immigrants who have journeyed from Lebanon to North Carolina and labored here to build new homes, raise families and enrich the state with their culture and hard work. It tells of a legacy that is as much about great accomplishments as it rests in the quiet and unassuming. A singular doctor in a small mountain town or a car mechanic at a Piedmont crossroads become vital threads in the fabric of this state.
The documentary was produced by Moise A. Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies, which is dedicated to research about the Lebanese expatriate and diaspora in the U.S. and the world.
The screening is part of the public program of the exhibition ‘Alcântara: The Travels of the Brazilian Emperor Dom Pedro II in the Arab World in 1871 and 1876’, produced by the Embassy of Brazil in Beirut in partnership with Dar El-Nimer for Arts and Culture, and curated by Roberto Khatlab.
