A  must-watch award-winning ‘Best Arabic Film’ at Cannes World Film Festival.

“Karkha: A Village from Lebanon” is a compelling 45-minute docu-drama, created and produced by Public Matters Lebanon, supported by Charlie I. Hanna, from Karkha.


The DocuDrama is the first of a series of episodes that focus on the waves of Lebanese immigration since the 19th century until today, under the title “Homes & Heroes”.  


In contrast to the conventional negative portrayal of Lebanon that is often depicted in global news and movies, this film delves into the positive elements in Lebanese communities and their resilience in all its forms throughout many generations.

The movie takes place in a small village in Southern Lebanon called Karkha while unveiling a rich history of the region since the 1700s while building with the audience an emotional journey all through the film. The significance is that all those who appear as actors are actually the locals from Karkha, whose naturalism and love for their land have spiced up the sense of realism in the storytelling.


Away from political and religious incitements, this movie is an inspirational one that reminds us of what matters most.


This film is directed by filmmaker Nassif Al Rayess whose beautiful realism and cinematic storytelling have bundled up the events with a nostalgic ambiance with all those who appear as actors in this episode. They are actually the locals from the village whose naturalism and love for their land have spiced up this drama.
